The exhibition includes major names from the fields of robotics, biotechnology, synthetic biology and artificial intelligence, including the world’s first living cyborg, Neil Harbisson.
A world where cyborgs, superhumans and clones coexist with humans is no longer a mere figment of our imagination. Discover a future world where the lines between fiction and reality are blurred in ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species, opening 20 May at Marina Bay Sands.
Showcasing the work of 40 international artists, scientists, technologists and designers, the exhibition explores possible future paths for our species. It includes major names from the fields of robotics, biotechnology, synthetic biology and artificial intelligence, including the world’s first living cyborg, Neil Harbisson; Australia’s leading performance artist, Stelarc; and Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr, who grow sculptures from living tissue.
Spanning four themed galleries, HUMAN+ presents a wide range of artwork and scientific research that shows how our perception of humanity is being transformed by science and technology.
Augmented abilities presents physical and biological ways in which we have augmented our minds and bodies; encountering others explores how motherhood might evolve in a world of robotics; authoring environments analyses how we are transforming the very environment we live in due to far-reaching advances in science and technology; and life at the edges explores the limits of human life and longevity.
