The Milgram Re-enactment (2002)
Images of the installation of The Milgram Re-enactment, 2002, (Rod Dickinson in collaboration with Graeme Edler and Steve Rushton)
The installation is shown in two formats:
As a large room sized recreation of the laboratory (shown above), which visitors can enter and look at the detailed recreation of the electro shock equipment (more images below). This is accompanied with a single channel video of the re-enactment that plays alongside the installation, or in a separate gallery. The audio from the re-enactment video is also broadcast into the recreated laboratory, so that visitors inside the recreated laboratory can hear, but not see, the re-enactment taking place.
