Like a half remembered vision from a long forgotten nightmare, ‘Ghost in the Machine’ is both compelling and disturbing, and holds a dark fascination for me. As if trying to communicate from another realm, this tortured, gaunt and haunted character stares directly at me, expressing a strange and sorrowful existence with its dark and sunken eyes. Perhaps most chilling is the elongated, open mouth – trying to speak but without a voice. Trapped in a silent dimension and powerless, I can only image this protagonist’s future to be bleak and harrowing.
