I accept the impact of technology and the digital world on my body,
I respect the changes that have occurred in its development. I’m proud
to be a part of the time when technology, created by man, changed
development of human factor faster than ever before… I conciously let
my physical part to be under digital control and subordination. (…)
I want to live in the world full of peace and technological domination.
I am here to be part of the devastating evolution.

techskin explores the lines between the materiality of human skin and technology
with focus on the possibilities of integration of the two.

it is made up of an online space and a small scale physical space (6m2 of floor
space; 1m in height) located in Tallinn, Estonia. However, the exhibition as a whole

Body ExTended, Self-Construal explores how social platforms can trigger
a social comparison and dissemination of ideal images between people, which
eventually influence the person’s self-concept and gender identity.
Due to several communities that started to become increasingly visible on the
internet, the individual began to feel an invulnerable affinity to invest in ego and
material goods. This is usually caused by self-induced shifts in consciousness which
makes personality malleable and where the body assumes a new identity that starts
to incorporate the ideal self.
Body ExTended, Self Construal is exhibited at the art space Konstanet which
functions on two levels: it is made up of an online space and a small scale physical
space (6m2 of floor space; 1m in height) located in Tallinn, Estonia. However, the
exhibition as a whole is only available online and not open to visitors AFK.
Nuno Patrício (b. 1985) is a visual artist based in Lisbon, Portugal. His work
