Are humans about to make themselves redundant? Or are we evolving into digital hybrids? The transition to trans-humanism is addressed via five recurring narrative islands about existence, corporeality, identity, transformation and consciousness. A living film which, thanks to machine learning code, narrates itself with an infinite number of changes.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann

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?
