telesonic transmission

“Television was considered by psychic researchers to be an occult domestic medium that allowed clairvoyance to increase across distances.”

Lisa Blackman, Immaterial Bodies

Television, video, radio, and film all carries within the undercurrent of magic, telepathy, and clairvoyance. Drawing on these undercurrents, Telesonic Transmission suggests listening in the (new) digital space can be imagined as a reaching out along the electric pathways, through the screens, into each other’s homes, into each other’s minds. The screen acts as a listening gateway, as an extension of my ears, my body and my sounding. It connects us in an intertwined listening experience across space and along far-reaching virtual pathways.

Performed at Online Performance Art Festival, June 2020
