AFTERGLOW: The internet is where innocence goes to die and you can come too

  • PACT 107 Railway Parade Erskineville, NSW, 2043 Australia (map)

Presented by PACT
Created by zin

An existential comic happening exploring surfing the internet as a performative act.
zin are here to break the internet, and are inviting you to help.

Banal and mesmerising. Confronting and familiar. You’re the audience. You’re in control. If you don’t like it – change it.

Featuring YouTube, Wikipedia, Reddit, the memes of Meryl Streep you never knew you needed, click hole despair and click bait euphoria, in an internet spiral to hell and back.*

Is it profound or is it trash? We don’t know, but look at this panda video.

* Phones remain on. Talking encourages. People with short attention spans will get a lot out of it. Free pizza?
