Hanging In The Balance
'Hanging in the Balance' is a science-fiction meets science-fact photographic exploration into what fundamentally makes us human, through this venture the artist examines the ways in which we are using technology to change our natural physiology. The project explores biomechatronics, cybernetics, A.I. and gene engineering, looking at how they are becoming ever more present in our day to day lives, altering our bodies and minds. The artist considers human characteristics such as mortality, natural selection, healing, creativity and growth, and seeks to open up a conversation on whether or not it is ethical or socially sustainable to stray too far from our Edenic origins and practice at playing God.
