This paper offers a reflection on the transcendental consequences of technological singularity on human societies through the analysis of techno-scientific and new media art. After reviewing several of the arguments staged in science fiction that have served as inspiration for contemporary artists, artificial intelligence and singularity itself highlight and allow a discussion of the issues that bring back ideas from post-humanist theories applied to recent advances in biotechnology or the political, spiritual and ethical considerations that technology exerts on the ontology of the human being. The capacity to project new scenarios for the debate between art and science fiction is shown by analyzing diversity of artworks, reflecting the concerns and yearnings that our society express in its vital relationship with digital technologies.
