The Transhuman Transition: Brief Note

Rob Harle

by Robert Maddox_Harle (aka Rob Harle)

My digital artwork over the past twenty years has investigated the technoMetamorphosis of humanity. 

Briefly it asks the question, sometimes subtly - sometimes brutally – what sort of future do you want your children and grandchildren to inherit?
Artificial intelligence has come of age and has irrevocably become part of our existence; robotics and prostheses have reached levels of sophistication barely dreamt of a few years ago. Together with this technoMetamorphosis, the “dumbing down” of humans, as predicted by Aldous Huxley and Alvin Toffler over fifty years ago, continues apace. We no longer have to “think”, the Internet, media, smart devices, social media and television do this for us. Most of the artworks below have been recently created, have not been shown before, and as usual address techno-dystopian issues.
