Ian Haig works across media, from video, sculpture, drawing, technology based media and installation. Haig’s practice refuses to accept that the low and the base level are devoid of value and cultural meaning. His body obsessed themes can be seen throughout a large body of work over the last twenty years. Previous works have looked to the contemporary media sphere and its relationship to the visceral body, the degenerative aspects of pervasive new technologies, to cultural forms of fanaticism and cults, to ideas of attraction and repulsion, body horror and the defamiliarisation of the human body.

The time for human mammalisam has passed, we are ready to receive orders as to the next level of human....

An installation project which references The Heaven's gate cult while exploring notions of 'digital evangelism' and techno-utopian rhetoric, as the ramblings of a desperate, crackpot, fanatical culture promising the new utopia.
