The posthuman subject, intertwined with technological, biotechnological, and socio-political systems, both in its synthetic corporeality and in its molecular design, has recently become the focus of my work. I employ strategies of speculative and fictional design, and imagine various technological futures, that bring into focus the tangled issues of identity, bioethics, and biopolitics. My projects contain scenarios that are not far from sci-fi narratives, comprising designed objects and media conventions, and situating the viewer tentatively between the absurd and the impossible. Without deliberately seeking answers, and sometimes by further complicating the issues, I attempt to choreograph the chaotic dance of the subjects of my work.
In this post-truth age, at a time when reality itself has become obsolete, I’m interested in using design to create scenarios based on scientific research. Through these means, I intervene in, reflect upon, and re-imagine the past, think about the present, and speculate about the future. I am invested in a spectrum of contemporary concerns and narratives, from commodified techno-bodies and speculative birth control, to the sanitization of posthuman warfare. By placing my projects into a framework of design fiction, I hope to open up possibilities for transgression of our current condition, whereby new modes of being and existence may be envisioned.
