Stellarc is the one of the world’s most celebrated artis working within technology and the visual arts. He is both an artist and a phenomenon, using his body as medium and exhibition space. Working in the interface between the body and the machine, employing virtual reality, robotics, medical instruments, prosthetics, and the Internet, Stelarc’s transhumanist art makes science fiction seem plausible.

NeORIZON (2008), Maurice Benayoun's urban interactive installation with IDWorms crawling on the ground in Pudong, Shanghai. They invite people to look inside, then being converted into 2D (QR)Codes which are an apparently neutral way of identifying people and objects. They all look the same if you don’t know how to decipher them. On the main screen a city landscape (IDscape) is being built out of the black and white pixels of the personified IDCodes. http://www.benayoun.com/projet.php?id=120

At one point in time these two worlds could have never been connected. But because of this simple / complex connection they are one... amazing thought
