LONDON CITY NIGHTS
By takahitoirie on 2013/10/07 in Press
Freaky post-humanism always appeals to me. From Cronenbergs “new flesh” to Giger’s biomechanics to artcyborg Stelarc’s self modification – throw technology and flesh into a cultural blender and what emerges is both pregnant with meaning and looks cool as hell. These combinations of human and machine usually tend towards horror: the subject often disgusted and alienated by the sanctity of the body being violated. While I guess this is understandable I’ve always been enthusiastic about these possibilities. Would becoming one with technology really be so bad? Anyway, aren’t we already utterly integrated with technology?
