In a series of essays assembled under the heading 'Directing Cyber Theatre', Salihbegovic is offering his understanding about several technical and aesthetic aspects of the contemporary digital performance and 'cyber theatre' as vast, versatile, and ever expanding artistic disciplines. The book is published as an augmented book. The augmented book is extending the experience of the traditional book by adding the strong digital element to it. One is able to watch the video clips pointing her/his smartphone to the dedicated images in the book so that the still images from the book 'come alive' when the video clips from the phone get superimposed over them. This new technology very much corresponds to the subject matter of the book. "Since Tadeusz Kantor, perhaps only Dragan Zhivadinov in Slovenia has pushed the boundaries in this way. Each represents a difference chapter over a relatively short period. Salihbegovic identifies this twenty first century moment of the traveller as artist and exceptional collaborator. He is an original thinker in performance, thrusting the privacy of the universal individual into question in a world of global oversimplification. The so-called real and the digital are entangled only to clarify a world on a slippery creative slope." David Gothard
