Everyday Cyborgs

If you had to make the choice would you choose to have your organs replaced with animal or mechanical ones? Does having parts of your body replaced with materials from other sources make you feel any different?

These are some of the questions that Wellcome Trust-funded research, conducted by STIS Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow Gill Haddow, and called, 'Animal, Mechanical and Me' sought to answer. Her research produced four short films and animations answering these questions from the perspectives of patients, artists and young people. Those films, recently premiered at the Edinburgh Filmhouse, are now also available on YouTube.
