Abstract (English)

"'Emotional reactions' uses as its background a facsimile text taken from a 1923 research paper entitled, 'The measurement of emotional reactions: researches on the psycho-galvanic reflex' by David Weschler. Superimposed onto this text are images of ephemeral objects - a label reading 'Fragile, a dead fledgling, old snapshots, a battered 'Old Maid' playing card juxtaposed with a cinema ticket that reads 'Admit One'. This imagery forms its own narrative that can be read in isolation from the text, or can be taken in conjunction with the information that lies beneath." -- Victoria and Albert Museum.
