VIRTUAL EXHIBITION & SPECULATIVE FUTURE
By Cultural Policy x Feltzine
Posthuman Island shows the futuristic world of five transformed humans in the year 2060. The project speculates about the evolution of human biology and psychology under the influence of AI. Each posthuman has a detailed bio and diary that documents their time spent in isolated rooms with unlimited access to outside information.
This exhibition explores themes around our potential physical and mental adaptations coinciding with impending technology. What are we as humans taking with us into the future?
This research is a collaboration between artists from the US, Germany, England, South Korea and Ukraine, including artworks by non-binary & BIPOC artists. The creatures presented are fusions of their digital creators, whose artworks dig into tech and cultural investigations on psychology and biopolitics.
Nearly six decades ago in 2001, a group of tech elites (known as “Dr. Trust”) founded NeuBi Solutions and set up ‘Posthuman Island’ – a research center beneath an island in the Philippines. In 2037, a group of human volunteers were left in isolation (with one-way online access) and repeatedly mutated using beta quantum evolution technology. Twenty-three years later, a posthuman anthropologist reveals the physiological, psychological and technological development that occurred in these beings and why they must be protected.
The show comprises 20 visual artworks (video, still images, gifs), five original audio compositions and an accompanying narrative story that weaves it all together.
