Enhanced Human, Artificial Intelligence, Transhumanism, Robotics. Faced with these new technologies announced and fantasized, which bends will our societies take? Will we be able to distinguish between humans, augmented humans and robots? What consequences will these technologies have for our businesses, our lives, our relationships?

I try with this series to project myself into the intimacy of a daily life rooted in a world where the border between the human and the machine is blurred. We discover characters evolving out of sight, discreetly so as not to reveal their true nature for fear of being differentiated and judged.

I draw a parallel between digital life and “real” life, which supports the notions of perception and appearance and its derivations especially with social networks. We can play roles, we can play characters, but appearances can be false or misleading. Also, I wanted to show these machines with some kind of low-cost design to show there are different social classes even among robotic beings. In my opinion, robotics should not always be clean and clinical. We could have homemade repairs, customization or improvement.

I produced more than 110 images for last five years, included some outdoor photos and animated images. I want to enrich the project with different shades and medias.

About Nicolas Bigot

Nicolas Bigot aka Niko Photographisme is a professional UX/UI designer based in Brittany (France). He creates images as a self-taught photographer for over 10 years. He works mainly on surrealist compositions and he likes to create his own world using homemade props and photo manipulation. He really favors “tangible methods” during photo shootings (no cgi/3D). He considers photography as a playground for imagination. Digital editing and retouching offer him a great freedom of creation. He’s obsessed with appearances and likes to work on body modifications and improved human capacities. False pretense, appearance and reality manipulations are his main common threads.
