We live in times of upheaval. More and more technical innovations are part of our everyday life. But how dependent do we want to be? Or are we already addicted? Will there be a time when we have nothing but digital friendships, sex with robots, when we hack our own bodies? The transmedia project “HOMO DIGITALIS” consists of a documentary web series and a self testing game. How does the digital revolution affect us human beings? Does it turn Homo sapiens into a new species – Homo digitalis?

Pollution, food shortages, exploitation of resources, arms race and nuclear threat – all of them warning catchphrases for a changing – no, changed by us – earth. We need it as a biosphere, but it doesn’t need us. “Planet ∞” shows a 360-degree space taken over by one of many possible dystopias. There is no human life left in this new world. The planet has changed so much that only a few organisms are able to survive. Only mushrooms, insects and marine creatures are capable of adapting to the new conditions. Is this doom-mongering or realistic fear?
