The Article

  • Leach, S 2016, ‘The Ghosts in the Machines: Morbis Artis’, The Article, 5 Dec

“The human body remains central to most of the works in ‘Morbis Artis.’ 20Hz provide an interactive installation using lights, sounds and sensors to perhaps induce nausea or something like motion sickness – directly impacting the physical body of the viewer. The damaged human body is aestheticised in Alison Bennett’s Bruise, an interactive video work in which bruised human flesh can be manipulated and moved on a screen. The viewer seemingly touching and manipulating the damaged organ, just to see how it looks, reminiscent of the Iain M Banks’ bruise artist in his SF novel Use of Weapons.”
