Tears in Rain is for #EDCMOOC final project. The idea is to show the human side of replicants (humanoid robots). Even in the dystopic film Blade Runner (made in the ´80´s) we see Rutger Hauer´s replicant showing a human side. Continue reading
Auf Deutsch? *klick* To be human in an increasingly technological world, what does that mean? What it does to us? Continue reading
