Agi Haines’ work is focused on the design of the human body. How might people respond to the possibilities of our body as another everyday material and how far can we push our malleable bodies while still being accepted by society? She is now undertaking PhD research at Transtechnology Research, funded by Plymouth University. She exhibits and lectures internationally around the topic of the future of design and the body. Her inspiration comes from the weird and wonderful things that exist inside us. Questioning how our morbid curiosity for the viscera of life might affect the future of design, not only for the environment but also for us as sentient sacks of flesh within it?
On Friday November 9th, Agi will join us at Brave New World to talk on the subject of ‘future specimens’. In particular about one project: ‘The Anatomy Lesson’, which imagined the impact of future procedures from the angle of the future medical practitioner, and how imagining these new procedures may have an impact on how we understand healthcare.
