What if artificial intelligence wasn’t evil, just misunderstood? This week’s video comes to us from John Pavlus, who spins a heartbreaking tale of love in a very unlikely place. Pavlus used the music of Jascha’s ‘Limited’ as a platform to ask the question: Did you ever think you could empathize with an ‘unfeeling’ machine? With a compilation of footage from science fiction films including 2001: ASpace Odyssey, Robocop, Tron, Moon and WarGames, he weaves a complicated and touching story that causes one to question the identity of the ‘real’ protagonist.
