The matter in this painting was to express with a given group of individuals, eleven players on the field, lost limbs and reconstructed ones, following the range of possibilities plastic surgery practices offer: mechanical, myoelectrical, functional and/or aesthetical and bionic. The last “player” thanks to his numerous enhancements has already become a hybrid body, of which we don’t know anymore what is part of the human and what is part of the machine.

Hello, I am Dr Judith Nicogossian, Anthropobiologist, Anthropologist in Health, Business Anthropologist, Keynote Speaker, Philosopher, Chronicler ... My main research is on The impact of technologies on the human body in Health. I am working at different levels of the "hybrid body", that is to say the examination first of what is to be a human being and second what is at stake with the impacts with the techniques and technologies on the human body. "Innovations" within an evolutionary process can be thenceforth defined as "innevolution". How to evolve with new technologies? How work processes of acculturation? What the limites are? Technologies also help us define ourselves and know what we want and what we don't want. View more posts
