The museum has invited Emily Wardill to make a videoproject in the x-room. The result is a fascinating love story that unfolds into a tale about the relationship between body and consciousness.
The film tells a story about the neurologist Eitinne, who has lost his wife. For many years he he has immersed himself in his work and neglected his love life.
Through the plot Wardill also explores how the Internet can be used for manipulation purposes – in this case the issues concern Slalems’s presentation of herself and the Internet as a tool employed in her social and emotional manipulation of Eitienne. At the same time the entire story also becomes a reflection of how the brain and the body are linked and how our consciousness and the physical realm operate in a state of constant feedback.
A love story
I am trying to write a love story, which I think is in itself quite a task, mostly because it has been done so many times before. A lot of the film will deal with sensory deprivation and how it works in films themselves and in the construction of character. In the film the character’s love will also be hidden and confined by what he can know, and what is impossible to know.
Read about the story in the film by Emily Wardill, where the main protagonist Eitienne tries to find love online.
