Schizmatrix Plus – variations: part 2. From a scanned original painting, then modified with 2d filters. The original painting was created back in the 1990s (as part of the Anthropo-Technikon series – works still not shown publicly), and was inspired by the sci-fi novel penned by Bruce Sterling, entitled Schizmatrix Plus. The general idea of the novel explores the evolution of humanity into the dreaded (my personal feelings about the transhumanisn) possible next post-human (or transhuman) phase of evolution. Hence the body modified figure depicted in the original painting (portrait).
