Andrew Thomas Huang Invites You to the “Flesh Nest”
Visual innovator Andrew Thomas Huang’s newest video experiment mixes technical deconstruction, motion capture, and Baroque chaos into nine chapters of lush and wonderful weirdness a year in the making.
Andrew Thomas Huang in an interview with Nowness: “‘Flesh Nest’ is essentially my sci-fi Fraggle Rock-inspired trash opera.
“While we are often accustomed to seeing the internet portrayed as vector graphics, data visualization, or other sterile imagery like server rooms, I wanted instead to construct visual imagery that had the same efficiency and mythic vastness as a Medieval painting.
“When you look at the paintings of Bosch or Bruegel, who were inspired by the artwork of the Middle Ages, there are so many characters and spaces building up and crumbling down; with everything inhabiting a single scrolling tapestry-like space.”
