Project Paradise: Cyborganic Experimentation

Wow, here's a kinky cyborg art project. Project Paradise plays on themes of telepresence, isolation, interaction, and the nudes "Adam & Eve" as cyorg puppets.
The installation consists of two aluminum isolation booths and a cylindrical chamber connected by video and telephone cabling. Each isolation booth contains the interface to "paradise": a television and a telephone.

Telephone button presses allow users to "be Adam or Eve in paradise." This "Paradise" can only be experienced through telepresence via the robotically augented human actors (cyborgs). Through these Cyborg Surrogate Selves, participants can touch the grass, the flowers, and the flesh.

The cylindrical aluminum chamber located elsewhere in the installation contains a lush, plant-filled "paradise" and two robotically-augmented but otherwise nude people: the Cyborg Adam and Eve.

The group behind this, The Centre for Metahuman Exploration, is definately pretty interesting. I look forward to hearing more from this tech art group.
