As technology advances humanity is faced with a plethora of existential decisions. Our devices are developing as appendages and a symbiotic relationship between man and machine is evolving. The Domesticated Dieties series predicts new human forms resulting from this next stage in human evolution. The forms are derived from 3D scans of contemporary individuals to create quarter-scale figures, mutated by the digitization of the human body. The scanning process distorts the figures, representing how we might evolve to conform to our devices. Without predators our evolution is stunted, but now technology has presented itself as a new predator. We may develop to meet the demands our devices ask, more immediately we already are noticing psychological changes as humanity becomes domesticated by technology. Inevitably, we will evolve in parallel with the devices that stimulate, expedite and motivate our collective consciousness.
