This project is a small tribute to one of my favorite films, Blade Runner (1982) by Ridley Scott. The film describes a world in which replicants, machines created in the image and likeness of humanity, coexist with people, being increasingly difficult to distinguish one from the other.
Only a test can tell the true nature of the examinee and this differentiation, human or machine, is one of the main themes of the film. What makes human and replicants different? and, through that question, what makes us human?
The following photos try to describe feelings. These feelings, both positive and negative, that define us as people.
Este proyecto trata de ser un pequeño homenaje a una de mis películas favoritas, Blade Runner (1982) de Ridley Scott. La película describe un mundo en el que los replicantes, máquinas creadas a imagen y semejanza de la humanidad, conviven con las personas, siendo cada vez más difícil distinguir unos de otros.
Solo gracias a un test es posible saber la verdadera naturaleza del examinado y esa diferenciación es uno de los temas principales de la película. ¿Qué hace diferente a los replicantes de los humanos? y, a través de esa pregunta, ¿qué nos hace humanos?
Las siguientes fotos tratan de describir sentimientos. Esos sentimientos, tanto positivos como negativos, que nos definen como personas.
“Fear made her seem ill; it distorted her body lines, made her appear as if someone had broken her, and then, with malice, patched her together badly.”
Sometimes to love someone you got to be a stranger.
What if I go north? Disappear. Would you come after me? Hunt me?
"She's a Replicant, isn't she?" (Deckard)
"I'm impressed. How many questions does it usually takes to spot one?" (Tyrell)
"I don't get it, Tyrell." (Deckard)
"How many questions?" (Tyrell)
"Twenty, thirty, cross-referenced." (Deckard)
"It took more than a hundred for Rachael, didn't it?" (Tyrell)
"She doesn't know." (Deckard)
"She is beginning to suspect I think." (Tyrell)
"Suspect? How can it not know what it is?" (Deckard)
"Commerce is our goal here at Tyrell. More human than human is our motto. Rachael is an experiment, nothing more. We began to recognise in them a strange obsession. After all they are emotionally inexperienced, with only a few years in which to store up the experiences which you and I take for granted. If we gived them a past, we'd create a cushion, a pillow for their emotions and consequently we can control them better." (Tyrell)
"Memories. You're talking about memories." (Deckard)
