On Saturday February 4 at 16:30, Kaayk and Van Mensvoort will present their views on the changing definitions of what is natural and human using provocative cross-media projects, such as the Modular Body. What's our future in post-natural environments where technology and the human body have become inseparable? Find more at Impakt and Transmediale.
