Mad About Machines

Liebe zur Maschine

Man and machine. From time to time this connection throws up some strange stories - love stories. In «Love of Machines» we follow people whose passion is to give life to machines and who are enlivened by them in turn. These supposedly inanimate objects acquire a soul in their eyes, defi ne their lives, and are a source of happiness that sometimes leads to a fervent devotion that can quickly become self-destruction. It is about people who not only use machines, but who also truly love them. With all of the consequences and «side effects» that love can bring - puppy love, absent-mindedness, melancholy and sadness. In these relationships happiness and disappointment go hand in hand, just as in human relationships, although for those who are in love with a machine these feelings are doomed to remain unrequited. The protagonists' refl ections on their passion convey an idea of how far love for a machine can go and of the light that this sheds on their relationships with other human beings.
