Humanthesizer

The human body as an instrument is a cool example of how culture and nature are merging. Calvin Harris used a giant human synthesizer to perform his single. The material used is Conductive Ink, a material technology that delivers a new platform for non-toxic flexible electronics. Bare is unique among conductive inks because it is non-toxic, flexible, water soluble, and cures at room temperature.

@jonas: Thanks for the cultural heritage lesson Jonas. Do you perhaps have a weblink with the classical STEIM work, so that the youngsters around the world – who cannot visit stedelijk museum Amsterdam can learn – can see what you mean? Thanks.

Just FYI, this kind of work goes way back to the experimental musicians of the 70s, and the work then was done then with far more authenticity and good taste. Half-naked girls in body paint? Really?
Look into STEIM in Amsterdam for examples of some earlier works, including Michel Waisvisz' Crackle instruments and Crackle exhibit at the Stedelijk museum (also in Amsterdam).

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
