Inspiration | an exploration into the extension of human capability | cybernetics | human enhancement

"Stelarc is a Cypriot-Australian performance artist whose works focuses heavily on extending the capabilities of the human body. As such, most of his pieces are centred around his concept that the human body is obsolete.”


While somewhat disturbing, there are few that are truly willing to experiment with their bodies.

All innovation involves experimentation - with a ‘fail faster = succeed sooner’ mentality, can and should our human evolution be accelerated with self experimentation? 

Where is, and should the line be drawn? We experiment implicitly, and mostly it goes unquestioned, is explicit surgery piercing/cutting the barrier of the skin the ultimate line that we draw?
