David Haines and Joyce Hinterding were commissioned by Performance Space to create Telepathy, extending their ongoing work which pulls signals out of the air and explores energetic aesthetics. It consists of a large yellow triangular wedge structure that viewers enter and stay within to experience the all enveloping environment of an anechoic chamber. Video cameras and monitors add to the ‘visual telepathy’ associated with video performance, both psychological and technological transferences combined, as well as the mind control aesthetic of surveillance. Andrew Murphie writes in the catalogue essay “To experience Telepathy is to renew the experience of a different organization of thought, one found not only in dreams, but in a courageous rethinking of material structure itself as the basis for dreaming differently.” The bright yellow triangular structure references the entelechial telepathy of the golden ratio as well as the telepathy of the monochromatic ganzfeld experience. As well as referencing visual ganzfeld as viewed from the outside of the structure, there is aural ganzfeld via the acoustic sensory deprivation of the anechoic chamber inside the structure. Perception is altered by both the sensual materiality of light waves on the exterior as well as the capture and muffling of sound waves in the interior.
