Mind Minus Body

In the near future you will discard your body...

... In the process of losing your body, you will achieve a level of freedom and longevity that is unimaginable to us today.

-The Day You Discard Your Body, Marshall Brain 

 

Modern technology in today's society is accelerating at such pace that humans and their bodies are incapable of working in sync with technology. What if we could dissect our bodies from the mind, in order to aid the latter to catch up with the technology? 

 

This project attempts to  demonstrate this theory, of channeling the energy to the mind by cutting off the physical nature of the human body. The simple domestic therapies shown in the project demonstrate to instant ultra-physical, out-of-body experiences, that are separated from the human body. This would lead to an exploration of the world of the mind, or the imagination, separate from bodily experiences. 

 

Mind Minus Body aims to question the audience further with the possible implications of whether freeing the mind from the body is the most appropriate and productive strategy for the society to progress.
