For non-original art:  My advice would be to buy one or two books on art 
with a "futuristic"/"transhuman" theme(s) or "robotic"/"nano" theme(s) - and 
just cannibalize the books (tear out the pictures) you like ... then frame 
the pictures professionally (that will be the biggest expense - but good 
framing is worth it).

Original art, however, doesn't have to be too expensive.  For example, eBay 
has artists who do work on commission, and art students also would be a good 
source.  You explain what you would like - they interpret on canvas.  Maybe 
there are people on this list who are arty and would do something like ... 
work on commission for you.

Or else YOU try your hand at it.  What does transhumanism look like to you, 
Samantha?  Now, sketch it out or paint it ...!
