There is an opinion that the virtual space is an incorporeal place, where the sense of body is missed. In this paper we tried to show another way of thinking according to which the virtual space as well as cultural creative practices is the place where mind / body problem misses its valid. Body in the virtual space and mind in the cultural creative practices has a marginal status as they are situated in the other "hemispheres". We suggested to investigate the way the sense of body is realized in cultural projects, which exists in the virtual space.
