Part of a series of images from the liquid metal, carbo-plastic, hydrogel and permacrete core of visual creators on the Internet. Images that stir my senses and evoke plots and concepts for what I’d like to see (or fear) in the future.
Two London creatives, Diego Indracollo (photography) and Pok U Chan (illustration) have come together under the art direction of Kay Korsch to produce some incredible visual concepts. This one in particular, has a very futuristic flavour. A woman, human or otherwise, revelling in the fluid weave of extraneous technology: some organic, snake-like familiar, as might be used by a medieval sorceress, but in this case by the next-generation of homosapien. Traveller. Adventurer. Functional consumer. Genomed to extrude like hair and chiffon fabric, but bristling with receptors and loaded with offensive anti-personnel systems: cardiotoxins, constriction or neural distruption from a single touch. If non-organic, then this technology fits into the mould of Nanomech; with the gossamer appearance of spider silk, the consistencyof warm hydrogel, and the strength and conductive qualities of aerographite. Wearable and re-configurable on command, it can conceal bodily areas to conform with the cultural dress codes of any place; or facilitate 360-awareness, dispersed processing power and digitally augmented senses through direct interface into the neural cortex.
A great shot that captures a nude in almost manga-like motion. She’s the pin-up girl of cyborgs and Carbon-88s.
