Welcome to the third issue of the Body, Space & Technology Journal. The material published in our previous issues has been excellent and we intend to maintain this high standard. We have had a fantastic response to the journal so far and the reputation of Body, Space & Technology is going from strength to strength. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Johannes Birringer from Dance Technology to our editorial board.

The journal is now capable of supporting audio and visual interactive technology and we welcome submissions in this area. This issue features papers from performers who prioritise technology in their practice and site-specific visual artists. We would like to draw your attention to the performance review section which is a developing feature of the journal. Please keep the performance reviews coming in and or course we are still very interested in receiving paper and book reviews.

Articles remain the core component of the journal and we are now open to receiving submissions for the next issue. For our next issue please check the deadline in our submissions page.

Finally, we hope you find our third issue of Body, Space & Technology both stimulating and a source of inspiration for your own work.

Sue Broadhurst and Barry Edwards.
