  • Part Human, Part Animal, Part Machine

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Doo-Sung Yoo’s Organ-machine Hybrids project series have reused and transformed discarded animal organs within artworks since 2007. Disembodied animal organs were combined with electronic devices to become the conceptual artificial hybrids as part human, part animal, and part machine, which illustrate metaphors for the human body’s ongoing tendencies and attempts to physically and biologically transform itself through technological augmentation. For the artist talk, Yoo will introduce the project concepts and the processes and talk about his artistic purview of the ongoing scientific issues associated with the human-animal hybrid and human-machine hybrid.
