Posthumanism, Cybernetics, and Artcrime

Aimee Mullins shows us her twenty four legs.

Further, Stelarc shows us his third arm.

Find more Stelarc interviews here and here for the interested.

And finally, in an attempt to frame the escape from the human body in it’s most extreme terms, the artcriminals of David Bowie’s (wildly uneven) Outside commit guerrilla back-alley surgeries (and finally a murder) in the name of art.

Of course, the producer of  Outside… was the now inescapable Brian Eno.

But what brought this all up? Through a link from my tutor, Shaun Murray, I found Aimee, which reminded me of other work I’ve seen dealing with the possibilities of cyborgian extension of the human body, which was exactly the direction in which I was headed already.
