In the ultimate definition of a labour of love, Japanese artist Yamiken (Takahide Hori) has created a mindblowing 30-minute stop-motion movie over the period of four years, covering an unusual war between humans and clones, set in a very sinister future. He's currently seeking funding on Indiegogo for a sequel.
In the distant future, humanity is hurtling down a path of ruin. Global environmental destructon caused by chemical contamination, radioactive fallout, and UV rays coming through the patchy ozone layer has lead to deterioration of the human genome.
In an attempt at escape, humans expanded their sphere of daily existence underground, but they were decimated by an ancient virus that had been sealed there.
However, by developing gene recombination technology using the viruss genes, mankind was able to attain a lifespan that could be called immortal. The human body became inorganic at the molecular level. No breathing or blood circulation was necessary; as long as a faint electric stimulation was present, even existence as a disembodied head was possible.
(It was popular to change ones body as fashion, and bodies that were no longer needed were fitted with AI heads and sold as laborers.)
