LABORATORY SERIES. No.08. Artist Rod Dickinson’s The Milgram Re-enactment, in collaboration with Graeme Edler and Steve Ruston, 2002. The three and a half hour live performance re-staged Stanley Milgram’s Yale University experiment, “Obedience to Authority,” using an exact replica of Milgram’s laboratory, including original electro shock equipment from the 1960s. A video accompanied the piece, which recorded eight iterations of the performance in real-time. Photo Courtesy of Rod Dickinson.
