Patricia Piccinini Le terme «monstrueux» qualifie quelque chose qui effraie, qui fait sortir l’ordinaire de ses gonds, en s’écartant d’une norme établie. Le Petit Robert nous renseigne et définit le terme comme suit : «qui choque extrêmement la raison, la morale». Mais le monstre c’est également cet être choquant que l’on exhibe, que l’on montre. De monstruosité et de monstration, il en est question dans l’oeuvre de la plasticienne australienne Patricia Piccinini, née à Freetown (Sierra Leone) en 1965.

Takashi Murakami Takashi Murakami (村上 隆, Murakami Takashi?, born February 1, 1962) is an internationally prolific contemporary Japanese artist. He works in fine arts media—such as painting and sculpture—as well as what is conventionally considered commercial media —fashion, merchandise, and animation— and is known for blurring the line between high and low arts. Transhumanism Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.[1] Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics of developing and using such technologies. They speculate that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label "posthuman".[1] History[edit] According to Nick Bostrom,[1] transcendentalist impulses have been expressed at least as far back as in the quest for immortality in the Epic of Gilgamesh, as well as historical quests for the Fountain of Youth, Elixir of Life, and other efforts to stave off aging and death. First transhumanist proposals[edit]
