Fernando Montiel Klint's work refers to the state of hypermodernity -full of contradictions- and reflects on the transition to the "post-human." He questions new forms of behaviour induced by technology. What will new paradigms represent, compared to previous standards? What is next, when condemned to multi-screens and communication platforms, defining our actions, and when we have stopped recognizing ourselves, and we no longer get to know each other organically.
