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?

Posthuman Island: XR collab by Cultural Policy, Feltzine, Areyes Studio and Mubert

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.

STORY

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.

SHOW

The show comprises 20 visual artworks (video, still images, gifs), five original audio compositions and an accompanying narrative story that weaves it all together.

Eldzhey ASMR — NFT collaboration by Mubert, Eldzhey, Binance & NFT Arka

Using Mubert technology we are going to create a uniquely generated ASMR sounds of Eldzhey - it will be a non-existent moment of his life, a parallel reality, perhaps even the sound of a concert in the bathroom which he has not yet performed, or the screams of his fans on the highway where he is rushing in his car – the lucky owner will get his unique audio-token – literally, a piece of his life. → Learn more

Agenders — thoughts

Compared to painting or literature, academic music knows even fewer female composers in its history. This fact has, on multiple occasions, become the starting point for all kinds of quasi-scientific speculations and generalizations, in particular, the myth that women are supposedly not as “musical” by nature as men. → Learn more
