It is the posthuman vision of transgression. Where different transgressions are placed in the way we visualise ourselves in environments from the digital field, as future conditions of the human being and its connection with interfaces. Allowing a look from the transgression of the frontiers between man/machine, time/space and life/death, with new ways of creating communication codes by forging new visualisations of the environment, as an artificial and virtual landscape. It is the accompaniment of each individual, which evidently leads to the process of identification and control of each being, which can become a means of censorship in the future, losing the autonomy and freedom of each individual.

Transgression of the field of laboratory creations, which endanger the lives of human beings, such as biological weapons that end up being just as lethal as physical weapons, such as bombs that end up killing without distinction, throwing death everywhere.

Transgression of beings created from biological and cybernetic experiments, such as computerised prostheses, where it is postulated that the biologically manipulated human body is altered to face the future "Underground" world, as a post-evolutionary strategy.
