Bowie Bots

“I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.” 
David Bowie
This series of original artworks invites us to imagine the new personas David Bowie would have embraced in his immortal existence through a series of cybernetic resurrections. Renowned for transcending conventional identities through his innate ability for fluid change, David Bowie defied the confines of the mortal realm, transcending time and space. Infused with Bowie’s diverse interests, passions, and experiences, his spirit serves as the guarding force in the exploration of the ever-evolving nature of self.
Simultaneously, the project contemplates the enigmatic nature of our existence and consciousness, exploring the potential implications of emergent technologies on human identity. It confronts the timeless question: are we merely intricate biological machines shaped by genetic programming and life experiences? As advanced technological systems continue to evolve, could it be possible to download our memories and consciousness into them as everlasting vessels for our identity and soul? Is it even morally right to even contemplate this or is advanced technology finally poised to deliver the ‘immortality’ that many religions have elusively promised us? Will we be delivered into the afterlife as cybernetic angels?
