If we could walk in her shoes we would know…..
“Deus Ex Machina, (Latin: “god from the machine”) a person or thing that appears or is introduced into a situation suddenly and unexpectedly and provides an artificial or contrived solution to an apparently insoluble difficulty.”
Athena Ex Machina is a young machine/woman who dwells in a city of the future. She has returned to teach us about the destiny of the human species and the lessons humans must learn in order to survive.
Using her mind and technology to regenerate herself, Athena Ex Machina is part of an ongoing body of work that questions the idea of designing life, blurring the borders between human potential and the omnipotent.
