  • About the work

    Karen Barad mentioned that the body “are material discursive phenomena… Human bodies are not inherently different from nonhuman ones”. We can say that the posthuman does not see the body very different form prosthetics, or we should say the posthuman no longer need to emphasise the “in between” status of their physical and non-physical existence, as this is their norm. Maybe this is also the reason I like to explore the meaning of making an image in this contemporary age, by working with my own biometric data, trying to make work regarding the lack of differences between human and non-human bodies.
