Virtual Futures Collective – Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Sellars at the V&A Museum

Virtual Futures Collective,  director Luke Robert Mason hosts #VFSalon – Alternative Anatomies with guest speakers Stelarc and Sellars at the V&A Museum.

Virtual Futures collective with Stelarc and Nina Sellars at the Victoria and Albert Museum Digital Design Weekend.

Stelarc and Nina Sellers

Yes that is an ear on his arm! That’s Stelarc.

Stelarc is a performance artist who has visually probed and acoustically amplified his body. He has made three films of the inside of his body. Between 1976-1988 he completed 26 body suspension performances with hooks into the skin. He has used medical instruments, prosthetics, robotics, Virtual Reality systems, the Internet and biotechnology to engineer intimate and involuntary interfaces with the body. He explores Alternate Anatomical Architectures with augmented and extended body constructs.

Virtual Futures

Director: Luke Robert Mason

Virtual Futures Collective

Virtual Futures Salons are a series of highly immersive event experiences that encourage and promote original thinking. They bring together artists, philosophers, cultural theorists, technologists and fiction writers to re-address the potential of looking at our future through a techno-philosophical lens. Virtual Futures Collective http://www.virtualfutures.co.uk/

As you can see I am very happy to have found my fellow cyborgs and collaborators again.

Stelarc and Sellars – Virtual Futures Salon at the Victoria and Albert Museum 

Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Nina SellarsVirtual Futures at the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Digital Design Weekend.

A momentous day in the technobiosphere of digital design / cyborg / post human / cultural studies / art history.

Guest speakers Nina Sellars from Symbiotica and #VF original Stelarc connected through a shared interest in anatomy. Sellars, looks at bio-material and has re-claimed fat as an organ with greater stem cell yield than bone marrow.

Stelarc experiments on his own body and is cultivating an internet enabled, stem cell grown 3rd ear on his forearm. The combined artist/scientif/ic practice is a groundbreaking collaboration that challenges anatomical boundaries, opening up further potential for unexpected possibilities for the human condition.

Real mind blowing, body popping stuff!!! #postART+SCIENCE artistic practice.

Virtual Futures stems from The Cybernetic Culture Research Unit (Ccru) a student-run interdisciplinary collective founded in 1995 out of the University of Warwick’s philosophy department. It was associated with the work of Sadie Plant, Nick Land, Dan O’Hara and many other rhizomatically linked associates.

Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Nina Sellars – Virtual Futures at the Victoria and Albert Museum 

Alternative Anatomies with Stelarc and Nina Sellars – Virtual Futures at the Victoria and Albert Museum London 

Very excited. En-route to the #V&A #museum to film Stelarc and Nina Sellars talk at #VirtualFutures Salon. Stelarc is an original 1990’s #VF contributor. 


Renowned for pushing the boundaries Stelarc explores and interogates notions of identity and the post human. With a third hand and stem cell grown ear he could be described as a living cyborg…

The legendary art/robotics artist will be in discussion with Nina Sellars. 


“The original Virtual Futures Conferences (1994, 1995, 1996) were often portrayed as technopositivist festivals of accelerationism towards a posthuman future – the “Glastonbury of cyberculture”, as the Guardian put it. However, hidden behind the brushed steel and silicon, the jargon, the charismatic prophets and the techno parties the mission was rather more sober and more urgent. They were an attempt to develop a new interdisciplinary approach to confronting the contemporary technologisation of first-world cultures.

The Virtual Futures Conferences (1994, 1995 & 1996) saw groups of renegade philosophers lock horns with the future based on the provocations of evidence provided by the emergence of the Internet. Their predictions were wild, exerted creative licence and were unfaithful to every academic discipline.

Soon these events evolved into a unique, international gathering where the morphing of cultural space was accelerated by the head-on collision of science, theory, music, fiction, and multimedia. Today the conferences continue to connect audiences with one of the most important intellectual and cultural developments of our times – the technological extension of the human condition.”

“What makes one an activist?

Activism is bred from rage. Being a “have not” in an environment of riches is maddening. People continue to insist that the film business is a meritocracy, that the best and the brightest succeeded, but most are blind to the fact that without opportunity one cannot possibly rise. This is true regarding class, race, or gender. It’s this frustration and exclusion that sparks the flame of needing to fight back.

What is working and what isn’t?

We have to stop accepting the status quo. We say, “The future is female” but in Hollywood that all too often means having female executives or filming a female protagonist who just acts like a man. Until we have female creators using their voices and vision to offer fresh perspectives, it’s all pabulum.”

Handing in day painting Life’s a Beach shortlisted for judging in the National Art Open Competition 

Today’s the day! It’s up to the painting to work its magic now. 


Handing in day painting Life’s a Beach shortlisted for judging in the National Art Open Competition 


The building at NOA was full with artworks arriving from around the country. I caught a glimpse of some of the submissions and by the standard of work I saw, I’d say the competition is fierce. There were some stunning paintings and huge ones arriving in crates. Didn’t make me nervous in the slightest! 

Fingers crossed until judgement day on 29th August! However there is still time to take part in the people’s #worldartvote – Voting ends on 28th August
