augmentation of the human body

Wikipedia describes this as –

Human enhancement refers to any attempt to temporarily or permanently overcome the current limitations of the human body through natural or artificial means. The term is sometimes applied to the use of technological means to select or alter human characteristics and capacities, whether or not the alteration results in characteristics and capacities that lie beyond the existing human range.

The futurism movement was concerned with this, the human body can be enhanced by technology.

These images and video have made one thing clear to me, do I take the clinical surreal approach? connoting the surroundings of a futuristic room/ surgery. Or do I take the documentary approach?

the more clinical approach could have a greater impact, but the documentary approach might suggest normality and the clock shows routine which could be a comment on how normal this will be in the future? I think I need to film some stuff and then ask people which one evokes a stronger atmosphere.
