Power of mind 4 – Dissociative Defense / Mogens Jacobsen

Mogens Jacobsens (DK) installation is a biological, galvanic battery consisting of several hundred potatoes. When the exhibition starts, the electrical power of the potatoes drives a text censoring software system. As target, Jacobsen chose the last chapter of a highly critical report relating to immigration issues, that was discredited by the Danish government immediately after its publication. As the potatoes begin to dry out, the suppressed words and censored sentences will gradually reappear in the text. This process is not visible in the gallery space, but can only be seen by accessing the system on the internet: pom.aec.at
