Giger Biography

For me looking at Giger’s artworks makes me think about the posthuman body, although mostly paintings/ film pieces just the look of these makes me think that these human bodies are combined with some sort of technology within the piece its self. Wires, tubes and veins coming out of these pieces at all angles – something is happening here, and its not human.
