MEDIAS MEDIUMS PERFORMANCE
By Gwenola Wagon & Jeff Guess
The research project Média Mediums, directed by Jeff Guess (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Arts Paris-Cergy) and Gwenola Wagon (Université de Paris 8) explores a wide range of experiences and practices that have to do with the idea of transmission at a distance. It is an investigation into the archeology and prospective future of various communication technologies (telegraph, telephone, radio, television, etc.) and their historical relationship to what are considered to be more occult phenomena (mesmerism, telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, etc.).
