This project goes into ITC (Instrumental Transcommunication) not due to its exoticity but because we understand this as a field where truth is difficult to be established, a field made from uncertainty and therefore questioning. Our intention is not to prove other dimension’s existence but rather create a deep discussion around some materialistic goals that are probably keeping us far from creating new universes.

Also, considering that ITC was a big success during the 1970’s, we strongly believe in the possibility of finding people like Hilda Hist who knew the Friedrich Jürgenson EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) method but haven’t shared their findings anymore. If we succeed in this search, enrolling these former practioners, it will be a beautiful bridge between old and young people that are open to dream beyond nowadays political and economic standards.

The project is an hybrid form of installation that will host a relational art proposal during the hole event. Our working plan is the following:

1st) locally recreate the Franz Seidl’s “psychophone” and the Klaus Schreiber’s “transimages” ITC method in order to produce an audio, video and photograph installation with the generated images and sounds by using those methods;

2nd) simultaneously to the exhibition, offer an on going workshop about Mr. Seidl’s and Mr. Konstantin Raudive’s ITC devices, inviting visitors to build their own circuits and making tests in an welcoming experimental space that creates a nice atmosphere to exchange personal stories and perspectives around other dimensions and forms of living.

The planned workshop is intended to offer technical information around devices for ITC and its issues during the whole exhibition in a hands-on style. A group of 10 people working simultaneously with simple tools and electronic parts is the ideal picture. In case of too much people, we can schedule their participation.
