DIDiva & The Mad Machines
The mad machines refers to medical devices and procedures that were co-opted for nefarious uses in Cold War era drug and interrogation experimentation programs.
In 2010, I created a fictional public persona to stand in opposition to the sensationalized caricature of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder, popularized by Hollywood through shows like The United States of Tara. DIDiva has served me well as organizing principle for two exhibits of work exploring the features of my own dissociation and its sources.
She also holds forth at DIDiva.com, an informational website about DID.
