Come 20 May 2017, the lines between fiction and reality will blur in ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species.
The showcase will feature the works of 40 international artists, scientists, technologists and designers by exploring possible future paths for our species. This includes the likes of 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.
The exhibition is a collaboration between ArtScience Museum, The Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin and The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB).
Questioning what it means to be human in a world of artificial intelligence, lifelike robots and genetic modification, the showcase aims to probes social, ethical and environmental questions raised by using technology to modify ourselves.
