David, from marble to the virtual Olympus The body as a residue of past, present and future life.
This paper examines the myths of the ancient Greek connecting with our present, myths that have been slowly becoming a reality. Those myths as predictions of the future. Through this works I am investigating the control of the body as a product that relates to humans directly with the creator. The line that separates us from being a subject to become in an object and vice versa.
The main aim of this research is to find out if we have hugely changed so much that we are not able to even recognize ourselves. If the specie has evolved so aesthetically that we have become androids, cyborgs or in a Second Life avatar. Check if the human being has improved its ability to create themselves. This concept seems to me as very remarkable point of reuse that the evolution does of the body. The use of Internet has destroyed the concept of socializing as physical presence are not involved or I should say, necessary anymore. Will this means that the body is converted in an absent material?
