Social Out
Magnus Wassborg

Social Out depicts an encounter between a psychiatrist and a patient. The conversation extends over a couple of days and slowly but surely the patient takes control, while the psychiatrist responds by abandoning his dynamic questions and try to regain control. The conversation breaks down. The characters are visualized as two pastries; the voices are modified with a voice distorter. The dreams of the psychiatrist or the patient are shown,we are not sure who they belong to.
