Burning A Nest Underground
Video, 3:25 min
Burning a nest underground is part of an ongoing series created with the assistance of machine learning programs. I see the works as being concerned with ideas of ecology, mutation and devastation- this video in particular was trained on footage of wildfire destruction in the western U.S (where I live).
