‘Please Continue’ is a three channel video work that acts as a meditation on the seemingly meaningless list found within the Milgram’s Obedience experiment. The work brings together a series of visual associations and a close-up shot of the artist reading the wordlist, in order to build a visual network of interpretations and representations. The work explores the intersection between the rational and the poetic, pushing scientific knowledge into the realm of the subjective narrative. Through the repetition and memorisation of the word list, the work aims to open up a new alternative reality, where the threat of punishment and the power dynamics of authorities have become inconsequential.
This video is a composition of the original three channel piece.
