This research project speculates upon the notion of preparing bodies for the rigorous living conditions of outer space. The core elements behind this research project include the effects of the Anthropocene, the photo-allergenic, the human body and the mind. Extreme measures of the Anthropocene are moving the earth into an uninhabitable environment, and will therefore soon prompt extreme human adaptation. It will also force us to question the continuation of human existence on this planet. The effects of global warming will result in an increase of photo-allergenic humans, leaving their bodies unable to tolerate the sun’s rays. This solution poses the idea that humans may need to reside within the deep darkness of the remote cosmos. To do so requires the exploration and manipulation of the body and the mind in order to design procedures and training protocols necessary for preparing to live in space. Anthrolumino (human light) demonstrates how we can prepare for evacuating an overheated world.
