The key concept behind the video work "the singularity" is the future transformation and technological control of human evolution. The furious pace of development in the field of “g-r-i-n” technologies (genetics, robotics, information and nano-technology) is changing our bodies, our minds, our memories, our identities and even our posterity. Technologies converge with the aim of improving human performance. Prenatal genetic determination means that children can be made to order while cloned bodies serve as repositories of ersatz organs, and new types of body engineered by manipulation of the atomic structure of matter will be far more robust, flexible and long-lived than the old ones. These new bodies will be designed to live at the speed of data networks. Such new developments will allow us to control human evolution through genetic algorithms and neuronal networks and will elevate the human being to a new and far superior form of existence. The eagle embodies Zeus, the divine privilege of creation. The machine represents technological control of creation. The moment of transformation is the key metaphor for the technological transformation of the human body in its future post-human and possibly even immortal existence.
