Doll Face

I recently discovered Andrew Huang's work, which deals with many interesting themes from nature to digital culture and the body. He uses a combination of live action, animation and CGI to create short films such as Doll Face:

"A machine with a doll face mimics images on television screen in search of a satisfactory visage. Doll Face presents a visual account of desires misplaced and identities fractured by our technological extension into the future."

The Gloaming is another example:

I can relate. Also liking the Hitchcock 'Birds' reference happening in there.

In addition to films, Huang creates light installations that are pretty amazing:

"A series of works focusing on the fusion between physical and 'virtual' forms using polygonal meshes created from string, nails and found pieces of driftwood."
