About This Work

As early as the 1940’s, Homosexuality had been documented as a mental illness and developmental disorder. Conversion Therapy was a means of remedying patients through a process of spiritual counselling and psychological treatment. in the hopes to change an individual’s sexual orientation to Hetereosexual. Reflecting on these studies and activities around the Pseudo Science of Conversion therapy, Melbourne Multimedia Artist and Animator, Marc-O-Matic models, animates and depicts a small collection mid-century fashioned, odd fandangled contraptions that parody the absurdities of the field.
