Truly, I cannot really understand what the artist is trying to say with this piece. At first glance, I thought that this was a stand on electrocution, both self-inflicted and via the death sentence or interrogation methods. What I took from it is that people are reluctant to admit until death is in their face. Those who are on death row, do not confess fully and truthfully until the reality of the death is real for them. On the same token, sometimes people falsely admit when presented with pain and intimidation. Zooming in on the two objects that are hanging from the ties and are hooked up to the battery, I see a soiled t-shirt and something else that I cannot identify. This is a piece that I'd really like to see in person, as well as research it further.
