2008 World Telekinesis Competition

Deluge Contemporary Art

Victoria (BC) Canada. May 16 - June 14, 2008

Noxious Sector, in collaboration with Deluge Contemporary Art, is proud to host the 2008 World Telekinesis Competition -- a first of its kind event, in which teams from around the world will compete to psychically influence the behavior of a candle. Players are not expected to be physically present during competition, but rather will compete remotely from their home locations around the world. The World Telekinesis Competition is an open event, and all teams who have satisfied the submission requirements have been included in the competition. Please consult the schedule for match times and results (as available).
