Heidi Kumao Exhibits in ArtScience Museum, Singapore

May 31, 2017

Stamps Professor Heidi Kumao’s robotic, electronically responsive girls’ legs sculptures are part of a large group exhibition, “Human+: The Future of Our Species”, on view at ArtScience Museum in Singapore from May 20 - October 15, 2017.

Advances in genetic engineering, biotechnology and nanotechnology that not long ago seemed purelyscience fiction are now real. Cyborgs, superhumans and clones are alive amongst us today. What does it mean to be human now? What will it feel like to be a human a hundred years from now? Should we continue to embrace modifications to our minds, bodies and daily lives, or are there boundaries we shouldn’t overstep?

These are the issues at the heart of HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species. Showcasing the work of 40 international artists, scientists, technologists and designers, the show explores possible future paths for our species. It includes major names from the fields of robotics, biotechnology, synthetic biology and artificial intelligence.  From spectacular demonstrations of the latest robotic technologies, to challenging contemporary artworks, intriguing design prototypes, and exciting innovations from Singapore, HUMAN+imagines many possible futures.
