Mats Udd's new video for Firefox AK - aka Swedish musician Andrea Kellerman – is loosely based on the story of Laura Bridgman, a deaf-blind teenager who was subjected to a strange experiment in the 18th century.

Bridgman's physician wanted to demonstrate that humans had a natural connection to God by cutting her off from all religious influence. Mats Udd shot the video in Stockholm, with female dancers who exhibit different aspects of the young girl's disabilities, and her story.
