| SYNOPSIS

Ectopic Bodies was born out of a reflection on transhumanist ideas about the relevance of the Homo-sapiens-body. It deals with the concept of obsolescence through the portrayal of a speculative dystopian scenario. The body, a carcass that contains our human essence, is treated as a mere product, envisioning a transition to a post-human state.
