The picture above depicts how I was kept in restraints attached to an an iron bedstead’s four corners for three days and two nights with only one apple to eat And no one attending me. I was locked in the seclusion room alone and my only contact was with an aide called Jim Steadman or his brother Don Steadman, and when I begged to be released they said they could not, due to doctor’s orders. Later, when I was let out, one of the Steadman brothers told me that the doctor had informed him that such restraints were okay, because “schizophrenics don’t feel restraints the way normal people do”
For a view of most of my art work since 2008, when I started, see Pamwagg’s Opera of Art, at my Flickr site, which you can get to from the front page where it says: More Photos. There is also a folder about psychiatry and psychiatric-treatment inspired art.
“In India when we meet and part we Often say, ‘Namaste’, which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides; I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us." ~~Ram Dass~~
