The distinctions between man and machine, death and creation, reason and nonsense are examined in an unusual exhibition at Oi Futuro running through until September. As electronics assume more and more organic traits in the world - from the humble virus to the most complex robot - eight international artists use technology in unusual ways to discuss the aesthetics of science in the grand tradition of Leonardo da Vinci.

New Yorker Steve Miller's X-ray images of extinct creatures, 'Fashion Animals', posess a strange beauty, whilst Cris Bierrenbach uses the same medium for more shocking results, with cutting implements inserted inside himself in 'Retrato Intimo'. Elsewhere on the first floor, Portugal's Marta de Menezes' work 'Functional Portraits' shows the responses of the brain to various stimuli via magnetic resonance imaging, whilst upstairs Guto Nóbrega's 'BOT-anic' brings together plant and robot life as one and Monica Mansur's work 'Silêncio' offers an original look at the human body.
