Wang Zi Won represents the relations between man, technology and science through the bodies of cyborgs.

The artist predicts that in the future humans will evolve and adapt themselves to enhanced science and technology just as men and animals in the past evolved to adapt themselves to their natural circumstances. He sees this future as our destiny, not as a negative, gloomy dystopia. He considers it important to escape from human bondage in order to achieve harmony between men and machines.
