Who is the NEOHUMAN?
Niamh Paul is an illustrative-led designer who’s work involves 3D character and product design. Through traditional 2D illustrative methods, sculpting, 3D CAD design and working with bronze she creates wearable art.
This project is an exploration surrounding the possible identities and fabulation of creating a ‘neohuman’ character. Niamh’s fanciful, sci-fi character-meets-creature designs have been heavily influenced by the canalisation of two concepts: our technologically sublime age and the post-human discussion. The bronze masks aim to bring the neohuman’s character into real time as the wearer becomes the character and as a result, the viewer is placed into this fantasy world where a neohuman exists.
