King of worms
This project was inspired by Jane Arden´s movie The otherside of the underneath from 1972. The film currently has almost mythical status amongst fans of radical, experimental cinema, partly because of its visionary and disturbing depictions of the mental state of its schizophrenic protagonist.
'Our father king of worms, multiplier of numbers, we have made a cross section of the facts, and come up with murder. Strength, little girl. is madness and madness is the persistent belief in ones own hatefulness. Lightning in the brain. Signals down the arm, persuading the fingers to conclude that which happened a very long time ago. when this light goes out we measure it against the sky. And the difference will ascertain the night of the witch howl.'
- Jane Arden, The other side of the underneath, 1972
