Project Proposal:


Non-human, non post-human

32 years 3 months 6 days was the time that Daniel took to recognize

that he is a non-product of the postulates of the post-humanism, since

his birth Daniel has experienced variations in his tangible and

intangible scenarios; during, before, and after his surgeries, Daniel

has had to mitigate with the overwhelming wave of speed that progress

leads, nonetheless at the same time the surge of technology helps him

to survive in wild environments ruled by efficiency, throughout his

entire life Daniel hid its condition, pursuing the fact to fit and be

accepted by a society that rejects its own nature, unceasingly facing

all the complexity of our contemporary age being someone with visual

disabilities.


Transporting us with his gaze, Daniel portraits atmospheres that

depict variations that altern its quotidian life, thanks by the use of

technology, immersive experiences show captured moments and

limitations that helps him to be aware above current implications

provoked by the excessive use of technology, and the way that devices

re-shape our daily life. The boundaries that Daniel had to experiment

during his entire life have been modified constantly, habits, and

social dynamics have been ruled by artifacts that have allowed the

merge of tangible and intangible realities, which increases the

non-perception of nature and virtual worlds dramatically. Progress

steadily develops prostheses, artifacts, and devices that make our

life almost normal or more manageable, it depends on the needs of each

fellow, but at the same time artifacts, and devices that were invented

to maximize efficiency numb our minds, while devices are smarter,

humankind succumbs into the ignorance; Mental and visual diseases will

be more common due to the drastic use of technology, encouraging to

people become a persons with disabilities to merely justify the use of

prosthesis or devices that simplify their routines, nevertheless, we

have been cyborgs afterward the invention of antibiotics, the growing

current of anesthetized societies forces the invisible penetration of

otherness, justifying the excessive acceleration in the behavior of

their individuals, projecting in their imaginary the being superior or

different from the rest, often falling catastrophically into mental

disorders manifested by the sensation of a permanent burnout.


This work is committed to reflecting on a personal narrative, inviting

us to immerse ourselves in the tangible and intangible atmospheres,

which emerged in the permanent exploration of the natural and virtual

worlds.
