ABOUT NATASHA

Dr. Natasha Vita-More is one of the most recognized world figures whose research covers the potential future of humanity. The scope of her work covers science, technology, and socio-political issues of the advances in technology.

She has been called “an early adapter of revolutionary changes” (Wired) and a “role model for superlongevity” (Village Voice), and featured in over two dozen televised documentaries on emerging technology, human enhancement, and life extension. Her pioneering writing on “Ageless Thinking”, her innovation “Primo Posthuman” a cross-platform whole body prosthetic, and her current work on the “Regenerative Generation” have vigorously established a strong incentive to many. Her multi-media and narrative have received Special Recognition at Women in Video, exhibition at the US Film Festival, Filmex LA, London Contemporary Art Museum, Memphis Museum, Niet Normal in Germany, the Moscow Film Festival, and GOGBOT, The Netherlands.
In the field of design, her first rendition of a whole body resulted in an Ad Campaign comparing the human body to an automobile, with tune-ups, replaceable parts, streamlined devices, and a warranty. The project developed into a serious prototype (“Primo Posthuman”, 1997) that unmasks the probable outcomes of a regenerative human. The further iteration of this project has resulted in “Platform Diverse Body” (2012) and “Substrate Autonomous Persons” (2012), which offer insight into how technological innovation continues to enhance human physiology and diversify identity.
In the field of science, her recent research proved to be one small but consequential step in the field cryobiology. Natasha and her team developed what she refers to as the memory project. Working with the C. elegans nematode, a microscope simple animal, this project successfully proved that long-term memory can be retained after croypreservation and vitrification.

If you want to meet a potential early adopter of revolutionary changes, look no further than Natasha Vita-More.
