Do you wonder about the future often. How can you not? We’re creating it right now. As we watch the day-to-day drama of the present playing out into the future moment by moment, like many aware artists, we’re caught up in attempting to use whatever abilities and platform we have to try to steer the collective conversation in a better direction. However, sometimes we grow weary of the constant alarming chatter. However, even though these are trying times, there are still amazing things going on in the world.
Two researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College have deciphered a mouse’s retina’s neural code and used it to develop a prosthetic device to restore sight to blind mice. That means it’s just a matter of time before this will translate to humans. Remember Geordie’s visor in ‘STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION’? The future is becoming more and more real every moment. So today we want to post something a little different, a little more in keeping with what we most love to create. We’re fascinated with thoughts of how humans will slowly morph into cyborgs. As long as we keep evolving, there’s no stopping what technology will bring us. We might not have a visible motherboard in the front of our foreheads, but still… It’s fun to play with, don’t you think? @blueravenartist
