Agi Haines (UK)



Agi Haines’ work is focused on the design of the human body.

Notorious for being the ‘Frankenstein of design’ her work investigates the potential of our body as a raw material for our engineering fantasies and speculated on the impact of biomedical technologies on the human form. 


Through the production of realistic sculptures, she challenges the societal acceptance of technologically-driven bodies and she questions ‘how morbid curiosity for the viscera of life might affect the future design, not only for the environment but also for us.


Many kinds of modifications are inherently natural, even those that involve some kind of scientific or technological intervention.

The longing for self-improvement is an ancient aspiration that may have been encouraged by people to discover where the boundaries between their body and the rest of the world lie.
