The Human Mind Project runs an annual festival called Being Human. This year at Senate House I worked with Guerilla Science and The People Speak to open up discussion about artificial intelligence and creativity.
You Have Been Upgraded was a festival of human enhancement held at the Science Museum in March 2015. The festival transformed part of the Museum into a futuristic expo of biotechnology, featuring a mix of scientists, experts, artists and a bold theatrical performance.
Created by the Science Museum in collaboration with Unlimited Theatre, You Have Been Upgraded imagined a world where biotechnologists were elevated to rock star status by a new mega-company. Festival visitors entered a world where the boundaries of what it means to ‘be a normal human’ are broad, flexible and highly personal.
I commissioned and oversaw production of this short film made by Chocolate Films.
