Hybrid skins and fashion with nanotechnology

Combining fashion with advances in nanotechnology, genetic manipulation and cloning, the exhibition “hybrid skins” displays futuristic visions of a new world. The creepy, animalistic pieces envision a time where the body and nature are able to be copied and personalized.

Predicting new ethical and aesthetic possibilities through these unusual extensions to the human form, the show raises moral questions: is your body and genetic code your property that you may copy, remix and destroy? Is the use of biological material from a lab innocent, because no human or animal has died, or does it have its own memory and life? And can we change the nature to the whims of fashion?
