Nephesh (2022)

With the commercialization of bio surveillance on species, animals have evolved in a way to receive and transmit data more conveniently. Nephesh, is a mythical bird in the future, represents the imagination of future species driven by human technology. It symbolizes the human perception onto non-human species from the future network of internet of animals.
The hologram installation shows the physical transformation from an ancient birdsculpture to a GPS tagged bird, and then to Nephesh. The morphing depicts a physical evolution while reflecting human’s aspiration and desire towards non-human beings.
