Alberta Shearing: Performance and video artist
I merge together space/environment and my body so that one can become the other. I am trying to show the possibility of collaboration rather than division between humans and the rest of the natural world. Humans, now, strive for happiness, immortality and divinity. Human engineering may enable humans to become god-like creatures in the future, therefore becoming superior to nature.
Homo Deus (film, 2017) will describe human's perception of and interaction with natural environment in parallel to the rising intelligence of technology. Using footage of my past performances to represent the anatomical human, alongside screen grabs of google earth landscapes and found footage, I aim to create a collision of human, technology and natural environment to represent future human. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
