About "MS Windows 2029"

Dealing with the different aspects of a journey, (namely the physical, mental, spiritual aspects), this particular work deals with the technological journey towards Trans-humanism, and the age of so called “spiritual machines”. What will happen when we cannot differentiate between the CPU (Central Processing Unit) of a computer, and the human brain, or a web cam and a human eye?
A time when virtual-reality becomes part of our daily life.

Will the tools we design, end up sculpting our lives in order to better ‘their’ own?

Some futurists dealing with Transhumanism predict that the computer’s ‘brain’ will be 1000 times more powerful than the human brain in 2029. (Which is just round the corner!) Makes one think… What then? Perhaps something as simple as a Swiss Army Knife will ‘find’ greener pastures (literally).

The artwork was created on computer and then painted by hand on canvas. This process was chosen in order to make human-computer interaction part of the creative process.
