E-delivery, Young Gul Cho, School of Visual Arts

“E-delivery” is a three-minute, 3D motion graphics video. The project critiques today’s cultural climate of human’s total dependency on machines. Is it possible that machines will usurp our biological imperative to reproduce? The film takes us into a factory that does just that–– creating and delivering customized babies.
