Cell Race

 Stephanie Bickford-Smith / Jennifer Morone / Alexa Pollmann
Athletes have gone from extraordinary humans into super-humans with the help of prostheses and doping causing the spectator’s awe, aspiration and admiration to wane. Extreme superficiality led us to redirect our focus towards what is it to be human. In regards to speed and motility on a cellular level, faster cells mean mutation and illness.

Our athletes are shown fully enveloped in bright colours with the extensions of their illness or disability aimed to erase any stigmatism normally associated with medical equipment turning them instead into emblems of their strength and will to survive. 

The cell race challenges the disparity that lies between scientific practice and public understanding. By increasing the interest of health and disease into public awareness, emphasizing that we are all degenerating, hopefully the barriers that now stand between scientific advancement and political assuage may dissolve.
