Detlef Schlich is an interdisciplinary artist and ritual designer working with performance, photography, painting, sound, installations and film. His main concern is the exploration of the loss of boundaries between human beings and technology in the 21st Century, the emerging phenomenon of transhumanism in the digital age. His methodology is the creation of an alter ego, a mythical character, a contemporary manifestation of transhumanism which embodies the symbiotic relationship between the human experience and technology. Through these alter egos he can explore this fatalistic relationship in which human beings are losing their spirituality and seek methods of re-spiritualization through art. In his studio, he uses ritual performance footage as a source of inspiration. He then works with digital and physical media collaging both the charcoal, acrylics and digital to create a final piece of visual work.
