Rod Dickinson in collaboration with Graeme Edler and Steve Rushton.
The project is a reconstruction of one part of Stanley Milgrams Obedience to Authority experiment conducted at Yale University in from 1960. The Reenactment took place in the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow on February 15th and 17th 2002. During the experiment subjects were asked to give seemingly real electric shocks to another individual. Ostensibly the experiment was to test the limit to which subjects were prepare to follow the orders of an experimenter. How severely would they be prepared to hurt a fellow human because they were ordered to do so.
The Re-enactment represented 8 subjects moving through the Obedience experiment in real time. Using transcripts from the original experiment each actor took the role of a specific subject. Each aspect of the experiment was repeated for each subject. Under the guise of a memory test, subjects were asked to give seemingly real electric shocks to another individual. Ostensibly the experiment was to test the limit to which subjects were prepared to follow the orders of an experimenter, and how severely would they be prepared to hurt a fellow human because they were ordered to do so. The copy in the archive is a 90 minute preview.
