ABOUT

In rural small towns in the United States techno-anarchists are working on the fusion of the human and the machine. They develop devices and gadgets to implant into their own bodies, becoming guinea pigs of an envisioned ­transhuman future. Their risky experiments and strong faith into technology’s emancipatory ­potential challenge science, medicine and ethics equally. The photographer has been following the US-american bodyhacking community 2015-2019. His series, depicting makeshift arrangements and close-up surgeries, offers a counterproposal to the sleek visual iconography that commonly surrounds topics like 'enhancement' and 'future'.
