Sybilla Skałuba / Liminal transformation
The body of posthumanism: liminal life is a next stage of observation and penetration for me, this time of the subcutaneous matter of the human body both in the transcendent and biological sense. It is an attempt to specify our identity and to confront our sense of being “exceptional” with the ever-more-perfect biotechnosystems in the era of intelligent machines equipped with advanced forms of artificial intelligence. We cross the borders between the human and animal, human and machine, and between what is physical and what is non-physical. We become posthuman because both the idea of humanity and the natural environment of humans are subject to such profound changes that old categories turn out to be insufficient to describe the condition of contemporary people and their habitat.
