What is the human? Imagining The Posthuman Self

BY ANATOL BOLOGAN
@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Exploring the confluence of the human body, science and technology
the focus of Anatol Bologan's art-based research is to develop a series of digital and interactive artworks that engage the viewer with the discourse of humanism versus technicism by immersing the viewers into a multisensory interactive space. Interdisciplinary at its core, the project engages scientific, medical and technology-based research and imaging in the fields of human anatomy, perception, neurology and computer science. It uses concepts of artificial intel¬ligence and medical imaging as source material for artwork that consists of digital images, sculptures and interactive installations. The digital paintings, interactive sculptures as well as the interactive installations explore the confluence of human body, science and technology to further enquire and attempt to answer the question: “What is the Human?”
