This article introduces Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s concepts of smooth and striated space and couples these with the realms of art and technology. In doing so, and by analysing a case study, the dynamic natures and complex mixtures of art and technology are discussed. As a result, a perspective through which art and technology work together to enable new experiences opens up. The case study consists of Anja Hertenberger’s work entitled InBetween — an ongoing performance project in which she examines the reactions of people to her wearing an item of clothing which features a miniature camera on the front and a screen at the back. The article concludes by arguing that although Hertenberger’s performance concerns mediation, it mainly brings about immediate experiences that can be regarded as ‘imaginings’ rather than imaginations.
