Phuture Doom is a worldview merging occult ritual and transhumanism—an audiovisual infrastructure of clashing system functions—a revelation of human choices. The singularity nearing, cries to slow mechanization intensified but the waste patterns of modern consumerism persisted, nailing shut the coffin of our collapse. Forged from the limbs of the network, Black Acid poured from it's sutures and prophesied the integration of man and machine, the advent of a new human kind.
