“Influences of Digital Art in the Posthuman Era: Bina84 and her Human Alter-Ego”
Some contemporary arts and works discourses about posthumanity demystify fears expressed in most science fiction works. They lead us along a disturbing path between being and appearance, presence and absence, identity and ethics. Closely tied to science, works of artists like Moon Rivas, Neil Harbisson, Stelarc, Goshka Macuga, or scientist Hiroshi Ishiguro, question the future of this broadened humanity. Our article aims to analyze the intersection of art, science and technology the relation of the posthuman’s influence and the cultural consequences in the real life. As we can see for example Bina-48, sitting face to face with its human alter ego “believes” She/it exist.
