Theme: Limitless

This event occurred on

La défense, Hauts-de-Seine

Since its birth, Mankind has never stopped to push back the limits including his owns. From the day he first learned how to walk on his feet, to the one he walked on the moon he has always tried to surpass himself, to transcend.
After centuries of evolution, in the era of smartphones, internet and other connected objects - where a man can live with a printed heart - get a head transplantation - explore other horizons as planet Mars – where a humanoid robot possesses the intelligence of thousand people reunited, is human being close to reach its limits (physical, intellectual...) and those from the planet it inhabits?

Indeed, human being recognizes his responsibility in the climate change as well as the exhaustion of the energies and resources on Earth. He is now going over the limits by exploring the vast infinite universe. Human being has the will to excel, to accomplish its dreams. He likes to perform, such as in sports. However, the list of records is exhausting, so it encourages athletes to dope themselves to boost their performances for instance. Thus, we can ask ourselves about crossing the line between good and evil, which is ethical. «As said Pierre Dac, "it's allowed to exceed the cross the line, however, stay in the limits".
