A la folie
A la Folie / To Insanity features a series of 3D prints, interactive video’s and digital paintings based on a script inspired by ‘Die Verwandlung’ (the Metamorphosis) a novella by Franz Kafka. Kafka’s novella follows Gregor Samsa, a salesman who works to provide for his parents and his sister, Grete Samsa. One morning Gregor awakens to find that he has been transformed into a monstrous insect. Grete Samsa becomes his caretaker after the metamorphosis. That relationship starts off cordially and cooperatively but deteriorates to a passive aggressive state.
