CDR-DV1:AITCM demonstrates the transfiguration of subjectivity in the context of a staged containment of an unknown chemical disaster—following the five phases of organic toxification:

Exposure
Toxicokinesis
Toxicodynamism
Toxicogenesis
Mutagenesis

The symbolic, aesthetic and ethical positions of Facilitator, Technician, Trainee, Victim and Viewer become, through an application of Gestalt logic, parallel entry points to the understanding of the apparatus of forced subjectivity. As the song says, "Can't you see? You belong to me."
