TADAEX2018 / Immanuel

Immanuel BY Vortex

History has this weird tendency to repeat itself. It may be in different forms but the same result and the same loop; fear of extinction! In the Dystopian future of our handcrafted “ones and zeros,” we have created a world that is beyond our control; a world that threatens us by our own hands. Immanuel was created for one purpose and one purpose only, to give us HOPE: the hope of survival. But do we ever learn? As it goes through each stage of evolution, one is doomed to extinction and so is Immanuel; the amalgam of our flesh and our crafts; our intelligence at its best. Immanuel’s life is short. It will not complete its prophecy as it was designed NOT to. Like a child that dies in his mother’s womb, Immanuel dies in this Pandora box over and over again. In its first trimester as Immanuel starts to develop, the loop shows him time after time and he is doomed to a neonatal respiratory distress syndrome: a neonatal death.
