Ageing companions / Geprogrammeerde veroudering / Les cyborgs vieillissants

Happy and grateful to have been invited to participate in the research workshop Ageing Companions organized by Constant

Ageing companions explored the interconnected ageing of bodies and technologies. The lifecycles of different species are linked via electronic circuits with limited lifespan: accessories that measure biorhythms or monitor the growth-rate of specimens; interactive medical implants, networked pacemakers or wireless defibrillators are an everyday reality. As minerals, plants, animals, people and machines wear out, the technologies they carry and/or are part of, age as well. The ageing processes of biological and technological merge and it is not always so clear whether we are faced with physical or programmed obsolescence.
