          Abstract

          The artistic research explores the post-human aesthetics through the use live action/computer generated animation and Augmented Reality. Drawing on transgenics, biotechnology and bionics, the research proposes two different scenarios of an enhanced human. Effectively, these scenarios are represented through the projects entitled PHOTOPHILIA – a live action/animation video showing a human being that can photosynthesise, and MODIFIED – an Augmented Reality experience based on cyborg aesthetics.

            Enhancement technologies and human identity.

             D DeGrazia (2005)
            As the President's Council on Bioethics emphasized in a recent report, rapid growth of biotechnologies creates increasingly many possibilities for enhancing human traits. This article addresses the claim that enhancement via biotechnology is inherently problematic for reasons pertaining to our identity. After clarifying the concept of enhancement, and providing a framework for understanding human identity, I examine the relationship between enhancement and identity. Then I investigate two identity-related challenges to biotechnological enhancements: (1) the charge of inauthenticity and (2) the charge of violating inviolable core characteristics. My thesis is that a lucid, plausible understanding of human identity largely neutralizes these charges, liberating our thinking from some seductive yet unsound objections to enhancement via biotechnology.
