Embryoroom has been in operation since the mid 1990s, originating as a production identity and shortly thereafter as an identity Edward Quist performed multimedia exhibitions and released a number of projects under. Embryoroom evolved into a concept and studio for ideas uneasily classifiable, and a different exploration outside of the orthodoxy in art and media. Embryoroom has released a number of films and recordings on digital platforms.
The Black Vertebrate
Artist and filmmaker, Edward Paul Quist, aka Embryoroom, returns with a relentless assault on the senses. Sinister, pulsating, and primal The Black Vertebrate, a short or long form film depending on which version is experienced, has been described as a next level masterpiece of experimental film, environment, and sound. Split into nine chapters, The Black Vertebrate holds up a disturbing reflection to the complex world we have created. Embryroom pushes the limits of his unique and unmistakable style. It's as if one is trapped inside an artificial intelligence that is breaking down into some unknown realm of psychosis.
Embryoroom produced, directed, and scored “intersodes” (web series), aka HAZMASK, consisting of The Third Rail and Chamber of Aversion. They are akin to abstract moving paintings informed by the theme of “abduction phenomena”. Intersodes were released on amazon.com and iTunes. Hazmazk premiered at The Museu d'art Contemporani de Barcelona during the Sónar Festival.
