I’ve always been a bit annoyed at the public’s obsession over whether Lil Miquela is a fictional or real character, just because she isn’t the exact replica of an organic self. I personally don’t think the digital world owes the organic world any accountability, and mostly I miss the days when the Internet was a place to let the imagination take over.
Anyway I digress. #RobotProblem, Lil Miquela’s directorial debut for the Giphy Film Festival is a lovely little film, that is also very relevant to many questions of our time:
In an age when robot are thought of as tools for automate-able actions.
While bionic technology can make a cyborg out of any human.
Yet humans are obsessed with bots taking over social media conversations.
And random interactions are sometimes interrupted by the need to prove one is not a robot.
Sometimes a little help, to tell a little lie, is ok.
And robots also need our help, it can’t always be the other way around 🙂
