Zigla by Lex Mayhew

About this piece: In the spirit of David Bowie’s unparalleled ability to reinvent himself, “Zigla” is a self-building Bowie Bot. Much like the metamorphosing caterpillar in a chrysalis, “Ziglar” transforms electronic waste matter into a ‘nano’ state, where each nano particle journeys to a new position, assuming a form dictated by a cybernetic blueprint inspired by the amalgamation of Bowie’s diverse human identities.

“Zigla” stands as a celebration of technological and creative innovation, embodying the beauty of constant reinvention in a digital realm where the fluidity of identity takes flight. This cybernetic creation not only pays homage to Bowie’s transformative legacy but becomes a symbol of the boundless possibilities when technology and artistic evolution converge.

This series of original artworks invites us to imagine the new personas David Bowie would have embraced in his immortal existence through a series of cybernetic resurrections. Renowned for transcending conventional identities through his innate ability for fluid change, David Bowie defied the confines of the mortal realm, transcending time and space. Infused with Bowie’s diverse interests, passions, and experiences, his spirit serves as the guarding force in the exploration of the ever-evolving nature of self.

Simultaneously the project investigates the nature of existence and consciousness, confronting the timeless question: Are we merely intricate biological machines shaped by genetic programming and life experiences? As advanced technological systems continue to evolve, their capacity to adopt our personas and potentially attain sentience grows. This raises the tantalizing question: Can these systems truly become us, serving as vessels for our very souls? This thought-provoking endeavour invites us to contemplate the boundaries of human identity, the influence of emergent technologies, and the enigmatic nature of our existence.
