“The Cradle seems to suggest a new anthropomorphism. Conceiving the machine in the very structure of man, the post-human advent - although somewhat apocalyptic - serves as a reading to understand our place in contemporary times: they say that carnal matter is obsolete in the face of technological intelligence. Obsolete is still the technological material, quickly disposable and of short duration. Given Joana's work, it is up to us not to reinforce the dualism between machine and man, but to investigate its logic: if the body cannot cope with the artificial advance, what use do we make of these tools? ”
