in the framework of the exhibition "Awake Are Only The Spirits - On 
Ghosts And Their Media"   the following workshop will take place for 
which you can  register now:

Workshop by Martin Howse (GB)
16th + 17th May 2009 (Sat + Sun)
Please register until 8th May 2009 with Martin Howse, m at 1010.co.uk, 

Within the framework of the exhibition  "Awake Are Only The Spirits - On
Ghosts And Their Media"
The White Visitation projects the two day collective exploration of
scryed or spectral phenomena, an investigation of non-causality and
the detection of anomalies within processes of measurement and  observation.

The White Visitation actively traces an interface line between
contemporary technology and a certain Breakthrough, the very
shattering of a notion of the real which is both haunted and provoked
by modern physics and the history of communication media (telegraph,
radio). The popular disciplines of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena)/
EIP (Electronic Image Phenomena)/ITC (Instrumental
Transcommunication), established by figures such as Konstantin
Raudive, and Friedrich Jurgenson, articulate this fault line,
providing for a clear examination of the relations of environment,
modulation (signal, transmission), detection, measurement and
interpretation within frameworks which reject notions of causality.

The two day working group, composed of both invited and selected
participants will constructively explore this wide spectral context,
with an emphasis on aesthetic wave transitions (electromagnetic
embracing light, liminal sound phenomena), and with an approach to
contemporary hauntings (haunted media, the possessed Amstrad!).
Applications for participation are invited with submission of a
statement of interest to m at 1010.co.uk.

With the participation of:
Oswald Berthold, Kathrin Guenter, Martin Howse, Martin Kuenzt a.o.


SATURDAY 16th May 12.00-20.00:

- PK (psychokinesis) experimentation

- discussion and elaboration of classical EVP techniques (psychophon,
    ultrasound), recordings and interpretation

- measurement, mapping and interpretation of magnetic field
    disturbances (scrying) towards the set up of an evening measurement lab

SUNDAY 17th May 12.00-19.00:

- interpretation of measurement lab results

- experimentation with spectral imaging techniques

- thoughtography with the use of photochemistry and photodetectors/PMT

- proposals for the examination of haunted media

- anomalous field generation
