Windows is a near-future science fiction short that deals with the currently emerging technologies of computer-human interface and artificial intelligence. This project is a compelling exploration of the personal impact these technologies may have on our lives.
Windows tells the story of Luz, a woman who lives in a future where humans can choose to give up their individuality to merge into a single entity.
