The piece is a triple screen video installation to revisit certain fundamental moments of the film "Blade Runner" to reconsider questions about what it means to be human and mortal. The dilemma presented by the androids is similar to the old fable of the creature who rebels against his creator. This classic myth is present in numerous episodes of Greek mythology and literature, from Prometheus to the miserable monster Frankenstein created by Mary Shelley.

 

The harbinger of death, the consciousness of imminent extinction, and vital desire to survive, is what humanizes the replicants, pushing them to escape the man's supreme control and independence.
