Scott Thrift saw this as a chance to pursue an idea that he’d been tinkering with for a couple years: to make a series of short experimental films aimed at teaching computers how to be more human. Scott spent months realizing this idea in 10 short films, each of which explored a human specific experience or emotion like: vision, sense, touch, and color.
The visceral films not only showcased the wonderful gift of being human, but they asked critical questions about our reliance on our alpha-numeric counterparts.
In addition to a release on Sundance Channel, this visceral content was accompanied by a Tumblr curated by Claire Evans of YACHT and sparked a diverse conversation around the role of computers in the 21st century.
