Nadja Buttendorf Creates Jewelry to Mimic Extra Appendages #ArtTuesday

Interesting sculptures from Nadja Buttendorf via The Creator’s Project:

As a member of an organization called Cyborgs eV, Buttendorf is interested in understanding ideas related to the fusion of humans and machines. According to Buttendorf, the organization was founded by someone who needs an acoustic nerve implant in order to hear. “Without it he wouldn’t hear anything. Regularly, he has to go to the hospital to adjust it again, that’s how the company is still making money.” For Buttendorf, our relationship with machines and technology suggests that we are, in fact, becoming cyborgs. “Our body is the sensor to the world. We perceive information through the body and process it there, to build a common reality,” says Buttendorf. “With the FINGERring and EARring I am using jewelry as a tool to set the human body free of a normbody [sic].”
