Phantom Pain—The Theater of Operations

Gregory Whitehead
"I opened this place," the narrator says, "as an inter-disciplinary center for exploring the phenomenon of phantom pain. Phantom pain is the experience of pain in an area where the real organs of sensation no longer exist. The problem then is finding some way to address the reality of feelings that have been cut loose from the body. So as a director of the center my main role is to try to facilitate making connections in a situation, where real contact among the subjects is impossible." (from the work)
