Of Brains & Magnets
Magnetically Inclined is an exploration of the relationship between the mind and high powered rare earth magnets, in which we placed magnets in close proximity to our heads in order to explore aspects of magnetic induction. The project is based on the story of Dr. Michael Persinger, a Canadian psychologist who used magnetic stimulation of the temporal lobes to trigger a spiritual response in himself and others. And, while his experimentation was strictly scientific, ours instead takes a series of artistic liberties for the sake of magnetic and imaginative stimulation.
