Graham Harwood: Rehearsal of Memory

An interactive artwork created during work with residents in a high-security mental hospital. A simple single-screen projection features the bodies of residents - eerie self-portraits created by pressing their bodies against scanners. Touching their scars triggers their stories of self-damage and pain; an embodied history. Viewers can navigate across many bodies, painfully aware of their responsibility in which wounds they choose to probe.
