Hello, I'm new to posting, but have been reading ATS forums for quite awhile. I'm a young (27) New York-based artist who has been featured in some
pretty big shows recently (PS1/Museum of Modern Art's "Greater New York 2005", Museo Reina Sofia's "Musica-Video-Musica", the upcoming "Trial
Balloons" at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla (MUSAC) in León, Spain) and my collaborative partner and I have a residency at Brooklyn
Fireproof, a non-profit art space in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn.
Basically, we've set up an environment that functions as a combination film set and workshop where we're recreating and expanding some of the remote
viewing and psychokinetic experiments that have been done by academic and government-sponsored agencies, with the hope that doing such a thing with
the bit of attention we've received for our prevoius work can help place aestheticized documentation of successful trials in prominent enough places
to help subtly shift public/lay perception of the field in general towards acceptance, dialogue and open communication rather than what we see around
We're looking for more participants- people who can come in with a friend or loved one for about an hour or a little more- who would enjoy enacting
some of these trials. We've had alot of success with our modest little operation, usually being able to get some positive results out of most
pairings within about a half hour. If this sounds interesting to you, please feel free to contact me (Jay King) at firstname.lastname@example.org or
through this thread. You can look me up a little bit by searching
King/Diaz de León (Jay King and Mario Diaz de León)
We'll only be able to do this project in this incarnaton until March 10th, though we're in the space constantly, so if interested, we can book times
to participate/visit anytime between about 10am and 10pm, unless we've already filled that slot.
Thanks very much, I'm excited and a little nervous to be writing my first ATS posting on something I've worked on and thought about with regard to
this type of community for so long.
