Body technology has memories of culture and emotion in the joints, muscles and every breath that moves and stretches. It shifts between memories and fantasy about the future. While the body of technology is not just about machines, but the signs of a change in worldview and the work of the body. Connected or disconnected, inside or outside the boundary, fixed or unsteady, displacement and residence. The body always creates a balance of self with every object, nature and space. But, we are often in an unbalanced situation and there is always a problem. M.A.R.S is a corporal question of anything that seems unbalanced. Driven by speculations and binary decisions of those rooted in many different locations. Because we are always in it, but do not really know what is going on.
The new explorative work in-progress deals with the concept of body-image. A concept that brings with it the societal expectation for people to develop a ‘perfect body’. Through our research we strive to enquire and find the extent to which one will go to achieve the perceived ideal physical state, or is it merely a question of the state of mind? We wonder while traversing this path, if there's a place for the soul - devoid of the body it is contained in? Will this pursuit unsettle our inner peace as we voluntarily subject ourselves to personal discomfort and the ridicule of people around us! When the body decays, do we risk losing our soul!
