I'm an artist keenly interested in the scientific and philosophical theories springing from one of the more radical ideas to be born in the late 20th century; transhumanism or the so called H+ movement. Philosophers, scientists and commentators describe rapidly approaching technological change and its impact on society. I'm fascinated with how its fundamental ideas like life extension might be absorbed and blend into our society. Threaded into our existing notions of consciousness, self and afterlife. Will these ideas clash, be rejected and fought against or become absorbed into our culture? Who in society will benefit and who will lose out?

I paint, sketch, construct and produce digital realities and fictions in the UK. For a little more zip on over to http://www.russellrukin.com and reflect.
