Disembodiment, 2017

Disembodiment imagines an extreme human evolutionary step: what if we could separate body and mind in systems allowing us to escape the frailties of the flesh?

The work explores whether we are products of our biological whole or minds that can be sustained by technologically enabled bodies.

Current human ambitions exceed biological capabilities - ageing is being reconsidered as a disease and interstellar travel exceeds a human lifespan.

Disembodiment presents components in exo-body systems replacing the body to support consciousness. Here the reductionist separation is simulated by ‘green-screen’ technology to experience the mind within our future selves.
