Brodsky suffers from delusions, particularly in relation to fantasies
of time travel.
results of these interactions are made available to the government,
various market research companies and selected universities. Within academia
there is heated controversy as to the relevance of this form of anthropological
research. During her time at the Institute it was uncertain as to whether
Brodsky had discovered the secret of authentic time travel. If indeed
she had, these secrets were not made available to other researchers at
2058 Rosalind Brodsky died, leaving her costumes, her time travelling
diary, her home in Bavaria and much of her research material and other
paraphernalia to the Institute. The Institute, in gratitude to the wealth
of Brodskys contribution to time travel research, organised the
memorial tour you are about to embark upon today. As a result, careful
study of the diary has revealed that Brodskys delusions were unleashed
precisely on June 30th 1995, whilst on a summer holiday in Paris, during
a preliminary session with the psychoanalyst, Julia Kristeva.
Brodsky has also travelled in time to undergo analysis with Freud, Jung, Klein, Kristeva and Lacan, paid for with the profits from sales of her feature vibrators, album sales of her band, Rosalind Brodsky and the Satellites of Lvov and her TV show, Rosalind Brodskys Time Travelling Cookery Show.
has also made research trips to various film and TV sets of the 20th century.
voiceover from cd rom:
You are all here on this tour today to celebrate the life and times of Rosalind Brodsky.
Brodsky joined our organisation, as a young woman, in its inception in the early 21st century and was a seminal influence in terms of the development of our working methods and projects.
At the Institute we have been working with simulated forms of time travel for over 50 years in order to further human understandings of life on this planet during a period that has seen new settlements in other parts of our galaxy.
At times Brodsky suffered from work related stress and as a result appeared to lose touch with reality to the extent that she believed her virtual time travelling to be authentic.
However due to the nature of her findings the staff at the Institute became unsure as to whether Brodsky had in reality discovered the secret of time travel.
Many of us believe she had, but unfortunately all of her personal codes are indecipherable to us at present.
At the Institute she carried out major historical research into areas of film, TV, music, the history of psychoanalysis, the history of Eastern Europe, the Holocaust, the 1960s and the Russian Revolution. She also made several forays into the future where her special interest was food in relation to genetic engineering.
I ask you now to follow the blue flying saucer to the far side of this laboratory where we have enschrined her working study behind a memorial wall.
