Limit(less)

Limit(less) is a short art film, portraying a poetic vision of intimacy between a human and a robot. The film imagines a non-dystopian future through a dance duet, in which human and robot fuse in their tasks, becoming a new type of species. This vision challenges a common perception of technology as a threat to human relations and instead addresses new social questions that appear: How would genderless biological and non-biological bodies experience each other? How would they merge in their intentions and intuitions? What would their post-verbal communication be like?
The film was shot in the Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum - Vemork in Rjukan.
