1971 / 16mm / color / silent / 1S / 32' 00

In this third part of The Pittsburgh Trilogy (following "Eyes" and "Deus Ex") Stan Brakhage photographed autopsy -- a term which comes from the Greek, meaning: "The act of seeing with one's own eyes." "... Stan Brakhage, entering, with his camera, one of the forbidden terrific locations of our culture, the autopsy room. It is a place wherein, inversely, life is cherished, for it exists to affirm that no one of us may die without knowing exactly why. All of us, in the person of the coroner, must see that, for ourselves, with our own eyes." - Hollis Frampton
