To lose the control means: the feeling for time gets diluted, the usual navigation capacity gets slowed down or gets even lost. Working on site and meeting the surgery staff, while being inspired by the mazy and administrative architecture, the group has developed concepts responding questions on social control, linked f.e. to doors, rituals or words. Where is the key? Will the door stay open? No, no keys, I don't have a key. Did you lose your key? Who are you? a patient? An artist? A surgery person?
