Phantom Recorder 2010 - Revital Cohen (Israeli, b. 1981)
"Phantom Recorder explores the phenomenon of the phantom limb: an amputee's sensation that a missing arm or leg is still attached to the body and transmitting feelings to the brain. This physical hallucination is often treated as hindrance and corrected through therapy, but Cohen feels that attempts to alleviate it 'tends to overlook poetic functions of our body.' ... Cohen asks, 'Could we use this technology to record illusions of the mind? What if our imagination could be captured through our nerves?' "
"Before you can blame an individual for their choices, you have to make sure they have the same choices as everyone else."
