ZER000 EXCESS is a work of ambient body horror. Depicting the birth and growth of strange organisms--creatures spawned from the maw of the text. Watch as they fester in the dark. Illuminated only by the reflection of the monitor-screen. The data glut bleeds out into desolate landscapes of zeros and ones. Biocosmic distortions. Pixel vibration. Flesh-plane flatness.
Using cut-up techniques, warped imagery, and diagrammatic visual poetry, Jake Reber explores the relationship between the organic and the digital. The pages are designed for slow scanning more than reading. Excavating the yet-unknown terrains of databases and dead websites.
