I Am Human

Created By
Taryn Southern & Elena Gaby


What it means to be human will soon be drastically altered with advancements in neurotechnology, leading to an incomprehensible cohesion between man and machine. I Am Human offers a glimpse of what this technical evolution entails, following three individuals with neurological disorders: one rendered tetraplegic after a bike accident, one battling Parkinson’s Disease, and one with late-onset blindness. Each subject undergoes experimental brain interface treatment, which involves direct stimulation from surgically inserted electrodes. Progress is slow but the picture is clear: as disease and disabilities fuel innovation and expanded capabilities, the ethical quandaries of a cognitive revolution are imminent.
