What If I am Not An Übermensch?

What If I Am Not An Übermensch? consist of 10 individual videos, each featuring a 3D animated doctor, psychologist and psychiatrist. These are projected onto curved walls putting the viewer in a circular field surrounded by videos. Each video is equipped with a speaker that faces the centre so that the animated characters all speak to the middle. The situation  simulates a diagnostic evaluation, similar to one I underwent during my hospitalisation, and the videos will therefore appear over-proportioned to emphasise the feeling of being „under the magnifying glass“. The conversations are based on various passages from my medical records, however rearranged.
