In finalforest.exe we find ourselves amidst an unfolding cybernetic ritual. Deep within a virtual forest, a shamanic figure converses with sentient AI programs, whispering remnants of these lost pasts to AI-creatures that wander seemingly infinite digital forests. Mixing folklore, urban legends, archaeological records, conspiracies, and science fiction, “Finalforest.exe” interrogates mythic narratives of disease, demons and state power, that preserve the caste system as the core anatomy of Indian society.
