Exploring the limits of future scientific possibilities, the series explores a genetically engineered world in which life itself is re-modified, reconstructed and reborn. The laboratory becomes the birthing pool for these new ultra-humanoid personas; test-tube enhanced perfection. Utilising classic photographic genres including landscape, sculpture and portraiture combined with the cinematic tropes of science fiction, the work situates the artist as central in the role as maker and designer. Stitching together retrieved fragments from hard drives, reboots, and fading brain cells the project questions contemporary ideas around human existence and the possibilities of re-fashioned identities. Providing a prediction on a mesmerising future. A Brave New World awaits.
