Less than Human

This art piece was a torso body cast that I made using plaster of paris. It is painted pink and painted with a barcode. The cast looks a little like a hunk of meat because of the lack of limbs or head. The barcode is the ISBN code for the transhumanist book “More than Human” written by my friend Ramez Naam. I chose this because his book is about accentuating the human body with modern technology, while here I was using art to deconstruct the body into a minimal form of curves and volume.

I learned a lot about body casting in the process. It was extremely hard to get right, especially keeping the form the right shape.
