Psychotic machine


The machine is sensitive to its environment. It may panic, crash. It is psychotic. A machine, a camera, a linear rail, a screen, a patient, a psychiatrist, visitors...

A camera on a linear rail filming the screen. On this screen the text of a play intended on the ceiling. The machine has a voice, that of a suicidal psychotic patient. The area also has a voice, that of a psychiatrist, spatialized through speakers. The visitor is immersed in the nerve center of a singular dialogue : that of a neurotic machine with its environment.

The machine is a metaphor of our humanity, the word love could be the mechanism.
