The Perfect Human

The ‘perfect human’ questions how we become who we are, how we process our experiences and how a given role affects us. This video aims to observe rather than provide any answers. Drawing on an original video by Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth in 1967, the piece rewrites and digitises his anthropological observations on what it means to be human. Or rather “a perfect human”. The human is no longer in a clinical white room, but in a screen. Connected yet alone whilst being interrogated by an observer who is dictating the perfection of this human.
