A short film about a world dominated by computers


Recently, Keiichi Matsuda released another short film on a future dominated by computers and algorithms. Like in his movie HYPER-REALITY, the main character lives in a world dominated by computers. In the movie, she talks to computer therapist about her life being controlled by computers and software. She complains she has no longer control over her own life and she wants to transcends that.
The movie leaves it up to the viewer to imagine what the transcendence means, but it feels much like she is uploading herself into the cloud. I have written about that before. It is a possible end-state for humankind.

I am a big fan of his work. You can view it at dystopian or not. I like to take a more optimistic attitude, but the choice is your own.
