Human is an expression of the changing nature of humanity set to music as synthetic performers self-assemble and come to life. Combining music and cutting edge 3D animation technology, the synthetic performers express that individuality may be the key to being human. Even for a synthetic organism, repeating their programming reflects the same growing loss of humanity seen in modern society. The more we try to be like everyone else and go through the motions, the less human we become. The challenge to redefine her programming gives us a glimpse into the shifting boundaries of humanity.
