About the artwork Transhumans: Cyclops

Philosopher Nick Bostrom sees humanity as a step in our evolution towards posthumans, hypothetical future beings "whose basic capacities so radically exceed those of present humans as to be no longer unambiguously human by our current standards." Between us and them there is a period of transition populated by "transitional humans" results of experiments with physical and mental enhancement technologies.

"Transhumans", is a cautionary tale and an exploration of the possible, unpredictable results of such experiments.

The image is provided with a hanging mechanism on the back.

About the artist Titus Hora

"I am fascinated by artificial intelligence, deep learning, generative systems, and image synthesizers. These are the tools I am now using for creating my art. My role as an artist is to create visual metaphors for what I observe, see, and witness happening around me, to have a deeply rooted connection with the totality of human condition as it plays itself out against the backdrop of contemporary socio-economic structures.
This is what my art is about."

Titus Hora is a Canadian artist, designer, programmer, and machine learning developer. He has received his Master's Degree in Architectural Arts from UNArte in Bucharest, has studied Printmaking & Sculpture-Installation at O.C.A.D. in Toronto, and 3D Computer Animation at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Subscribing to a process driven, mostly abstract formalism, Hora´s work is an exploration of the symbolic reverberations engendered by the retinal. He is orchestrating intelligent, compelling and complex, baroquely rich compositions, possessing the emergent aesthetic qualities of procedural and generative approaches to image making, and a deeply rooted connection with the totality of human condition as it plays itself out against the backdrop of contemporary socio-economic structures.

By focusing on meaning and by touching the deep, spiritual essence of what makes us human, Hora’s work is conceptually and formally a challenge to the vapid contemporary art condition.
