The movie, Surrogates is set in a futuristic world where humans live isolated from one another and interact through cyber-connected surrogate robots. It’s full of adept observations and social commentary, but most of all; it’s an eerie compilation of current behaviors that remove us from flesh and blood interaction, our natural looks and the aging process taken to their logical conclusions.

This cluster focuses on the innovations used to help us live our lives in a different form of reality whether it be altering ourselves, furthering fascination with the virtual world or faking emotions.
