PSICON 2009

 

 

PSICON was a year-long research project into the occult and mystic realm, that charted my journey into the dark arts as I underwent training to become a powerful mystic wizard. The project took its most recent form as a video installation, presented as part of the BA Fine Art Degree Show, 'LDS09', at the University of Leeds in June 2009. The installation was a mock study/laboratory where research was (apparently) actively conducted into plant sentience, clairvoyance and telepathy.
