The Foaming Node

Ian Haig’s endlessly fascinating ‘documentary’ The Foaming Node essays the discovery and emergence of new bodily organs in meticulous and captivating detail. We follow the last remaining observers, members of a cult of sorts, who have experienced both the transmissions of The Foaming Node, and their own personal and strange bodily transformations. They discuss exactly how the changes associated with The Foaming Node have affected them, telling fascinating, visceral, detailed tales that reach beyond science, alternative medicine, and corporeality. Director Ian Haig’s feature continues the examination of bodies, transformations, technology and body horror seen in his recent artworks.

“The Foaming Node makes the roof of my mouth itch, it makes the bottom of my feet want to vomit, it created a really bizarre hissing noise in my ears, and my eyes wept honey. It’s disturbing. It’s unnatural. It’s bizarre.”

The Art Life

“Cinema is not meant to make you feel comfortable and safe. Cinema is meant to challenge you. And really, look at that face only a mother could love up there, looking at it, you know you’re going to be uncomfortable and challenged”
