The Future Life, Future You – Digital, Machine and Cyborgs at Jut Art Museum

The Future Life, Future You – Digital, Machine and Cyborgs

We, in the Future

Have you ever imagined yourself as a cyborg, a human-machine system with mechanical implants in your body?

Today, artificial intelligence has an ever-widening range of applications. It works in tandem with technologies and
algorithms. While they’re inventing new ways to alter the environment, their influence extends as far as the
modality and evolution of life. In this sense, humans and technologies have co-constructed an unprecedented
context of life. The fluidity of “life” and “body” in terms of definition and cognition has led to the gradual
acceptance of machines as a form of life, which ushered in an era of a new relational network interlaced by
“humans” and “machines.”

If “humanity” is the ideological foundation for life, the exhibition Dasein—Born to Be Human that ended recently
could be understood as an endeavor to cogitate upon the existence and essence of humankind from the angle of a
mortal “human being,” with the aim of collating the relationships between humans and themselves, humans and
others, as well as between humans and the environment. Looking into the time to come, the exhibition The Future
Life, Future You – Digital, Machine and Cyborgs further explores the forms and meanings of life, viz., its raison
d’être. As life is gradually transcending the physical confines of the corporeal body whether in the realm of reality
or that of virtuality, human beings, animals, and organisms of all stripes have taken on a brand new form of life
against the contemporary social milieu. In view of this, how do we redefine our very existence?

Jut Art Museum has maintained a long-term focus on issues concerning “city” and “future” through
contemporary art exhibitions. This exhibition features a total of 15 artists/artist groups from the United Kingdom,
France, Germany, Japan, and Taiwan, who use their respective artistic vocabulary to reflect the diversity of future
life-forms and challenge the viewer’s limited imagination about known natural creatures. Since our contemporary
life evolves constantly with technologies, how do we adapt and move forward accordingly? We expect the
dialogues unfolding in this exhibition to provide future human beings with refreshing narratives and creative
imaginations about life.
