In the coexistence of man with the machines it seems that the human loses ground. The technological development generates restlessness when in diverse areas we observe how, since the industrial revolution, the machines replace the man. MECHANISM It is a man-machine experiment, where I try to reflect the restlessness for the world to come, the future. The video shows the transformation of a man, a dancer, into a machine. Mechanical pieces are installed in the body with the intention of finding new movements and integrating both worlds. A body-mechanical experiment, with unsuspected results.
