For my final project I would like to focus on extending a topic similar to my midterm project. In my midterm I focused on the cyborg's purpose in matters of the world going towards a Utopia or Dystopia. My final project will explore how this could actually happen from the cyborg's view point. I want to show the cyborg as a being that's a little too human to be a robot and a little too robotic to be human. This gives an objective viewpoint being "stuck" between two worlds.
I'm going to combine this into a type of text based game/choose your own adventure. The game will allow the player to live as a cyborg, that has been made simply to live, observe, and develop its own mission and purpose. Depending upon the user's actions and choices, the cyborg will either assimilate more into human society, be completely disgusted with humanity or anywhere in between. I'll be focusing more upon the texts from earlier in the semester (Haraway, Shelley, Lyotard, Dick) and will also try to pull subtley from topics discussed in class.
