Sculpt your dream. Augment your reality. See your new body in lifelike 3D.
The ancient Greek did not have a word for the unity of the body. The greek word for "body" only
appeared to designate a corpse. "It is the corpse and it is the mirror that teach us (...) that
we have a body, that this body has a form, that this form has an outline, that in this outline there
is a thickness, a weight. In short, that the body occupies a place." (M.F.)
How does the perception of our bodies change through technologies that reshape, augment, preserve,
transplant and artifically produce our body–our physical reality? How is this connected to todays
expanding virtual spaces and the need for photographic self-assurance, for a digital mirror? Do we
perceive our bodies in parts, which each can be upgraded to the ever newest, healthiest version,
through Exercise, Diet and Surgery? Are we ever complete or have we always been in ruins?
