Imagine a future beyond the physical and organic, where bodies no longer have a purpose and are on the verge of extinction, where a female cyborg 'Body A' remembers the power of the primitive body.

The futuristic female cyborg, ‘Body A’, inhabits this science fiction world in which accelerating flows of information and encoded data have replaced the very fabric of reality and are dictating how bodies move and function. A selfless body that can not distinguish between inner-intention and external impulse; Body A is a mere container, a channel. It can only allow the information to pass through it.

Learning from the Future uses movement to amplify the primitive power of bodies against the background of their dematerialisation.
