What does it mean to be human? I ask myself this question often because I do no longer understand what a human is. 300.000 years ago humankind was prey, part of the food chain and knew his position on earth. And now? An animal species who transcended the food chain and slowly moves towards becoming an interplanetary species.
I review my work as a game between me and the viewer, in which I try to unravel the origins of our collective human identity. Therefore I experiment with concepts such as free will, progress, ethics and religion. So that I might one day be closer to the answer of the question: What are the core principles of our species?www.danielarthuus.com/
