Flesh Nest - Video, 2017

Flesh Nest is a nine-part journey through a digital multiverse imagined by artist-filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang. Inspired by Inferno by Dante Alighieri, The Dark Net by Jamie Bartlett and the works of writer-artist Ingrid Burrington, Huang creates a scrolling video painting that deconstructs the anatomy of Internet infrastructure as a hellish sci-fi virtual landscape. Digital beings scramble over rat’s nest cables wriggling through underground cave systems. Actors shot on blue-screen in rubber suits crawl in front of film equipment left in the frame. Motion captured avatars retain the glitches inherent from the imperfections of the capture process. Flesh Nest imagines the Internet as an abject, physical world of chaos where human behavior merges with data streams: a post-apocalyptic digital purgatory.
