ELSEWHERE: Artists Continue Pushing The Boundaries Of What It Means To Be Human

Back in 2011, I wrote a piece about Marion Laval-Jeantet, a French artist who injected herself with horse blood plasma in order to explore “trans-species relationships.” Laval-Jeantet isn’t the only artist working in this area and using their body as an artistic medium, though. Here’s a list of 7 “bio-artists” who explore, sometimes in disturbing ways, such topics as human enhancement, post-genderism, social concepts of beauty, and genetic manipulation. And in the process, they can challenge many of our traditional assumptions about what it means to be human.
