These videos were created from photographs of fumigation chambers taken at the Majdanek concentration camp in Lublin, Poland. The staining on the walls are traces of Zyclon-B, an extremely poisonous acid gas, that was used to fumigate clothing at the concentration camp. In this work, the images gradually come alive, oscillating between colors and levels of saturation. Their mesmerizing quality is meant to draw the viewer in, only to leave them horrified once their origins are revealed. The videos were designed for a theater production of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, a gruesome play that at its core explores the nature of power and how it corrupts those who possess it. The videos were designed to be projected onto the stage during Act 4, scene 3 of the play.
