Brief below :
“Our body is analogue driven by the senses.” What happens if we try to make a body? What if we create a body and mind that can see further, go faster, jump higher, speak louder or be stronger. Is it possible to design our bodies and mind? Is it possible that machines and new technology can replace humans? Can we create and re-construct organs for medical purpose? In this brief you are asked to rethink the body and mind. What are we made of? Explore the senses, chose to enhance them or even extend lack of senses or aid disabilities. ‘ if a person needs false legs, why should they look like human ones? A prosthetic has the potential to extend the body for beyond the limit we are born into – a prospect that is equaly terrifying and exciting’ Aimee Mullins: athlete and activist.
