Our body as a Jellyfish


2019. Transhumanism Concept. Video animation, 3D model, printed graphics, sketching concept book.


Description and concept:

Inspired by the lifecycle of the Turritopsis dohrnii jellyfish (Schuchert, 2004), the work returns to a fundamental question: What is the price of immortality? Based on that question's premise, the project consists of a concept of transhumanism in which humans have achieved immortality via integration with bionic exoskeletons. The result is an analysis of the disturbing appearance, behavior, and survival characteristics of these new creatures.
