Belçim Yavuz: Da Da Die

Imagine a machine that is programmed to perform one task; the reason for its existence. Now run for your life, type on your laptop the whole day, and turn around till you faint. Repeat doing whatever you do, to fulfill your human purpose. The project is conceptualized around the themes of life and death of machines and humans. Can the algorithms and machines surrounding us shape and control how we live, or are we still the ones who rule? How can we break the cycle of this mechanism called life?
