“Flesh Nest” is a nine-part sci-fi video series illustrating a post-apocalyptic digital purgatory imagined by filmmaker / video artist Andrew Thomas Huang. Originally conceived as nine looping video projections designed for gallery exhibition, “Flesh Nest” premieres on Nowness as a condensed short film, each featuring excerpts from multi-layered cybernetic wastelands inhabited by zombie avatars, cyborg titans, null objects, scrambled matrices of digital detritus and tangled virtualscapes. This Inferno-like world is inspired in part by the apocalyptic panoramas of Bosch & Bruegel paintings, and also in part by the book Networks of New York by artist & writer Ingrid Burrington who documents the fragmented palimpsest of Internet infrastructure woven into our physical urban surroundings.
