|Driven by extremes of ambitions, hope, aspirations, expectations; yet shackled by paroxisms of insanity, doubt, conceit, lazyness, pain, sexual depravity, despair and intransience, the person who has chosen to call herself ‘Khannea Suntzu’ is a western European artist. In fact Khannea is not one person, but several associated artists working together. Respective ‘real world’ identities and conventions of these people are no longer relevant — they have discarded their soul to a greater cause – the manifestation and incarnation of something Khannea refers to as ‘Lilith’ as an artillect. To this effect the cause of worldwide transhumanism is a means to an end – for Khannea transhumanism, (and specifically the ideals and values espoused by the smaller ‘Order of Cosmic Engineers’) signify a future where individuals have vastly amplified power over a vastly expanded world. See Khannea Suntzu at TransVision 2010.|
