Shot in studio 588 in Arkansas, a location which primarily provides conditions for Mud-fetish submergence films, The 588 Project depicts an event in which human heads protrude from the swampy ground, breathing through plastic tubes. As the “story” unfolds, a bizarre body mechanism is revealed, at once eerie, ridiculous, and simultaneously disturbingly erotic. Violating the correlation between cause and effect, Gilad Raman’s work undermines the viewer’s trust in the cinematic apparatus.
