https://vimeo.com/134434995 SYNOPSIS Posthumanismaniarama! explores the increasingly blurred line between human and machine. Through a series of vignettes, we follow the evolution of our relationship with technology, up to the present and beyond. At times unsettling and darkly comedic, this short wrestles with the looming issues of singularity, robotics, and the future of mankind. Will these changes and fusions push human existence into an enlightened age ­ or will we be left in the digital dust?
