With the rise of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and their effects on human enhancement, we are closer than ever to becoming demigods, mastering our own destiny through technology. A new question must now be asked: what does it mean to be human, more than human?
HUM(AI)N is a meditation on an impending reality in which machines are not separate, but a part of us. Featuring some of the world’s latest and most innovative technology-based artworks, the exhibition activates the movements of the body by challenging the heart and the human faculties of the mind — faculties that are increasingly being enhanced, altered, and shaped by technology. Welcome to the future.
Each ticket grants access to the exhibition for a 3-hour time slot. Tickets for the last departure of the day only grant access for a 2-hour time slot.
