Note: this artwork inspired the essay:
“…it’s to conceive and design a new social camp were people interacts acquiring new functions and meanings. This new ergonomics aren’t just a question of design of interfaces, styles and fashion, but the coupling and operating logic of the man inside his environment.
The human body turns into experimentation field – not just in genetics field – a place where the humanity and the technology forges a new and powerful connection. We build or sculpt ourselves like we build chips or political systems. A person like a hybrid net, where the body is, therefore, a meat computer who self programs in order to answer the higher level needs of the system. (…)”
