The birth of the industrial era has created a strong footprint on the environment, society and life as a whole. Its utilitarian rules have been a source of both (technological / economical) civil progress and suppression of organic origins. Reliving the relationship between machines and humans may help us to rediscover our proximity between technology and humanity.
