"Who was actually pushing the switch? I was, but he kept insisting.
I told him "No, " but he said you got to keep going. I told him it's time we
stopped... Why didn't you just stop? He wouldn't let me. I wanted to stop.
I kept insisting to stop, but he said "No..."
Why didn't you just disregard what the experimenter said? He says it's
got to go on, the experiment."
(Milgram 1965, 128-9)
My Work explores hidden aspects in the relationship between individuals and medicine and contrariwise the secret motivations of medical actions and rituals. Though medicine in our society is mainly seen as something positive, I am interested in those small moments and gestures, where we can peel back the layers to look behind the facade.
To enable these situations to develop I am constructing a very precise atmospheric feel in the film, by the use of clinical equipment, technology, costumes that create a realistic component, which is in calculated contradiction to the places, that could be nowhere or everywhere. The room is ambiguously empty or dark, or it could be happening outside on the Street, so you can imagine the pieces as staged, either in the theatre on the one side or as nightmares on the other.
