Transhumanism is an intellectual movement that aims to augment the human body through use of sciences and technique.
This topic refers to everyday purposes, which are already banal, such as the use of pacemakers or smartphones. It also refers to fantasies which advocate immortality and even claim the abandonment of the body made of flesh in favor of the machine. H+ is about the present. What really exists, what we can see, where we can see it. From Switzerland to Russia, between France, Germany and Czech Republic, he has been tracking, the people – from biohackers working in garages to major labs –, the objects and sometimes the concepts related to this movement.
It is the sum of various fragments that weaves a network of meaning. There are, therefore, many defects and deformations. Gafsou testifies here of the latent violence involved in the technological transformations under way.
