“Hygiena is a narrative loop centered on the interaction of a human and an AI humanoid.
Taking place in an alternate reality, virtual space, or near future, Hygiena focuses on a ritualized maintenance procedure executed within the high- key lighting and commercial production values of what could be an advertisement, music video, or porn clip.
