Natasha Vita-More: Since the 1980s, I have focused on human-technology integration and the relationship between arts/design, science. My work is concerned with methods for expanding human capabilities through what I call emerging, speculative media (ESM) for artistic, design-based approaches to human enhancement, life extension and expanding life onto nonbiological systems. This notion is derived from nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive/neurosciences (NBIC). Instead of being limited to these approaches, I suggest NBIC+ (+ refers to robotics, cryonics and methods not yet developed).Home Page | Twitter
