Matthieu Gafsou H+ Transhumanism(s)

Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+) is an international intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to enhance human intellect and physiology.
Matthieu Gafsou’s H+ series explores transhumanism and all kinds of body modification or enhancement: Artificial limbs, exoskeletons, implants, neuroprosthetics, Quantified Self gadgets, nootropics, dietary supplements, anti-ageing, biopower, body hacking, genetic engineering, body preservation. The series mixes documentary approach and allegorical visions and reveals the presence of transhumanistic ideas in our lives.
