tatraum projekte schmidt celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2014 with the last part of the 3-year trilogy , which explored the interrelationships between increasingly digitized life worlds and seemingly archaic human behavior. The human being seems limited, inadequate, deficient, and not contemporary in comparison to an increasingly faster and advanced technological environment, which is shining in its digital perfection. The human longing becomes stronger to be supported by technology, to function more effectively, to >self-optimize<, or even strengthens human phantasies of becoming God-like.
Do we stand at the beginning of a new relationship between humans and machines? Are we fostering a symbiotic HumanMachine relationship or are we two co-existing entities that soon will be able to gain their independency? Will we exist as autonomous competitors on Earth?
