Site-specific installation in the atrium of a former monastery in Venice during the Acqua Alta of November 2019 (high tide).
Psycho-galvanic skin response causing a 12th century well to speak. Triggered by evasiveness and forgery, an obscure self-engineered lie detector is connected to a speaker on the bottom of the well, which poses questions while the perspiration development data is stored in a suitcase hanging above.
The well conducts problematic inquiries with questions ranging from the fields of moral psychology, social history, Socratic conversation and cold reading. A perpetuating feedback-loop by a data-hungry void that questions our deontological or utilitarian decision making ways – binding together the well and its classic moral dilemmas.
