BREATHE IN… BREATHE OUT… LET THE HUMAN IN…

From stone tools to harnessing energy and now genetic engineering, human biology has evolved alongside our technology.  These advancements have created a chasm between Human and Nature. We have become detached from our own bodies, the food we eat and the planet we live on. As we enter the Anthropocene Age (a world made by human design), it seems that the next step in man’s evolution will be the Singularity: a state in which humans transcend their biology to become one with technology through artificial intelligence, biological enhancement or brain-computer interface.

In defiance of the trans-human form of the future, these surrealist works contemplate our current state of singularity with Nature. Working with natural elements from the ocean serves as a reminder of our long evolutionary journey and the ever-evolving state of human existence, while the female form – a symbol of life – implores the viewer to consider what happens to our biology when we become technology.
