autopoietic causalgia

The first in a series of collaborative sci-fi influenced faux-anthropological post-structural documentaries by artists Travis Wyche & Seth Childs. The viewer follows two grotesquely familiar creatures - an awkward beast spawn from discarded mattresses and an androgynous humanoid fleshtube emerging from the filth of the public restroom - as they journey through the rotting landscape of San Francisco/Oakland, CA. The cosmogonic myth culminates in a luminous television cave of transcendental knowledge saturation where the two mutant pariahs modulate the flicker of each others thoughts and mind meld into the aether of pure communication.
