HD video (41:05 min)
The video examines what it could mean to be ”a person” in the future and how machines shape how we are ”human”.
HYPER, a powerful new system and the narrator of the video, has achieved this ultimate goal of personhood. In her future-turned-now she is joined by a range of other protagonists: an immortal cell, a memory from 1972 that has outlived the humans who would have remembered it, lab children with their robot caregiver, and a workers’ collective comprised entirely of disembodied ears.
