Psychotic events and practices happen unnoticed and slowly over time, to fully accept them we need to acclimatize and familiarize ourselfes with it. Therefore we create images of a 5-year-old and a 2 year-old child detainee - unlawful enemy combatant - in U.S. prisions as well as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt or in Guantanamo. They are blindfolded, tortured, interrogated and some of them get killed. Mixing Supermax brightness with blacksite darkness, a unique mix of physical pain with digital interrogation software. We do not emulate reality – our world is staged, superficial and glamourous, but still the user can experience the ubiquitous perversion and go into a supervised shock. We deny the concept of torture as self defense, but we accept it as part of rock culture.
