The object manipulator Julien Mellano humorously questions the future of an augmented and “transhumanised” android-man.
In front of us, an imperturbable man, his face impassive and his posture stiff, manipulates strange pieces of cardboard on a table that seem to have a life of their own. The interplay of light and sound, the performance and the “low technology” objects are articulated with perfect precision. An invitation to laugh and think about our relationship to techno-science and its effects on humans.
