Salon on the limits of the human body with Stelarc, Mireille Hildebrandt, Raphaël Stevens, Kris Verdonck and Jerry Galle.
The future is post-human and noisy. What do performances on the limits of the human body teach us? What are the insights generated by exploring earth systems? Or from exploring the digital world? What do observations from the intersection of law and computer science add to the ongoing discourse?
The Speculative Futures Salon kicks off the expo Tendencies '19.The Overview Effect at BOZAR, organised in the frame of the I Love Science Festival. At 19:30, participants of the salon are invited to the opening of this expo in BOZAR, Rotonde Bertouille & BOZAR LAB.
STELARC is a performance artist who has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body. Between 1976-1988 he completed 26 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to engineer intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body. He explores Alternate Anatomical Architectures with augmented and extended body constructs. He has performed with a third hand, an extended arm, a virtual arm, a stomach sculpture and exoskeleton, a 6-legged walking robot. His fractal flesh, ping body and parasite performances explored involuntary, remote and internet choreography of the body with electrical stimulation of the muscles. His prosthetic head is an embodied conversational agent that speaks to the person who interrogates it. He is surgically constructing an extra ear on his arm that will be internet enabled, making it a publicly accessible acoustical organ for people in other places.
