Box Me Dumb Human Short Film

This short film advertises the Box Me Dumb Human installation. In the installation, a large leather boxing bag is boxed by the player, while insulting/motivating him/her with arguments loosely based on the AI debate. The player is fighting for all that is good about humanity, what distinguishes it from abstract mechanism, and he/she is fighting against the machine or system.
