In an effort to showcase high-end Art related to the future, or dystopian futures and related genres, we are showcasing at the Transhuman House art that is along those related lines. Currently, our Artist we are showcasing is a local Artist named Shane Flox, that works in a mixed oil on canvas medium and uses that as the basis for digital works. There are two large format oil paintings with multilayered symbolism on display and we included some of the digital art created from those paintings here.

(Provo, UT) A recent donation to the Foundation Library and the Transhuman House is a copy of the Golden Record created for, and currently on, the Voyager Spacecraft rapidly speeding into interstellar space. The new framed addition to the Foundation library is a gold record with the symbology and data encoded on the same side and framed as part of a 40th anniversary of the launch of the nuclear powered Voyager spacecraft.

Our most recent upgrade to the Transhuman House is a new set of Smart IoT blinds from MySmartBlinds. Besides the obvious phone app and IoT tie in to the Transhuman House technology, MySmartBlinds are self-charging with solar strips, work with IoT hubs and Alexa and much more. Being able to time and manipulate how the windows transfer heat and passive solar energy into and out of the house helps in the AI-driven management of the Transhuman House.

One of the new displays that was set up at the new ‘Transhuman House 2.0’ is a South American Biotope. A “Biotope” is a complete ecosystem and in this case, it means no chemical filtration and replicates a bit of a real one. The object is to showcase closed ecosystems along with the aquaponics and hydroponics systems.
With the donation of a new 3 bedroom condo in Provo, the Transhuman House has moved to a new location that is bigger and better and, as we are setting up, we hope to open the first week of Dec. We also have a new Sponsor, ‘Metric.Media’, that has supplied a new 86 inch interactive touch wall panel you can see us installing as well as other interactive screens.
This initial version of the house is about learning what works, what’s new and bringing resources together, building experiences and otherwise moving the various transhuman projects forward and the Foundation’s vision for the future. Working with local organizations such as the MTA or the New Vistas Communities, there is a lot we want to accomplish here. The image here is already grossly outdated and new features and modifications are always being added. Continue reading “360 View Tour – Version TR.01”
The Foundation Library at the Transhuman House is organized by collection. While some of those collections are not Transhuman specific, there are two collections that are specific to transhumanists. The first is the Transhuman Collection and the other is Transhumanist Fiction.
More than just a resource, the Foundation Library has a number of important collections that are accessible at the Transhuman House. While the real purpose of the library is to preserve knowledge and that key facility is still kept private, the public collections are here for educational purposes and to support related research both technical and cultural. The Key Collections at the Transhuman House are important, as they related to Transhumanism and Educating people on transhumanism and getting people to think about future.
(27 June 2017) H+Pedia has listed the Transhuman House on their Transhuman Wikipedia. IF you are not familiar with H+Pedia, you should be; as it is the quintessential resource on everything Transhumanist related. From the hpluspedia.org site:
While we can’t take responsibility for it, someone has installed a digital dead drop in the front yard of the Transhuman House. You might say our apple tree supports USB 2.0; but use at your own risk as you ever know what might be on it. The Dead Drop peer to peer network is a network of real life dead drop file locations around the world.
