FORBIDDEN EXPERIMENT/ In 1927 two young scientists were discovered dead in the Asian jungle. Siegmund and Sieglinde were heirs of a physician couple known for performing whimsical experiments on their patients. It seems they were left with a ‘forbidden experiment’, possibly with their own sister. Their science logs retrace daily actions performed onto the creature, considered mi-human mi-animal, and the trespassing of Siegmund who might have led to their suicide.
