BBC Future

Are humans ready to become digital?

A new exhibition explores ways in which we might view ourselves and others as digital beings.

The collection of works pose such intriguing questions like: how to we feel about seeing ourselves on screen; how would it feel to live more of our lives in virtual bodies, and how would it feel to let machines take more control over our real bodies?

The Robots and Avatars exhibition explores how people will work and play with new representational forms of themselves and others in virtual and physical life in the next 10 to 15 years. Spencer Kelly went to the exhibition to get a vision of this future.

The Robots and Avatars exhibition runs until 27 May 2012 at FACT, Liverpool and tours Romania, Slovenia, France and then the Asia Pacific region from 2012 to 2014.
