London Psychogeophysics Summit Monday 2 to 7 August
From Hyde Park spread their vegetating roots beneath Albion
In dreadful pain the Spectrous Uncircumcised Vegetation,
Forming a Sexual Machine; an Aged Virgin Form.
[William Blake. Jerusalem]
Across Hackney, East and South London and within its various streets and rivers an assembled crew of tinkerers, thinkers and artists will perform diverse pyschogeophysical investigations and actions within the first week of August, culminating in a large outdoor celebration and exposure of such endeavours on Saturday the 7th day of August
within an unfixed public space or garden.
Actors will engage in measurements of various fields pertaining to the sun and earth, to determine how these elements might influence a person's humours, will and wishes. Tinkerers will make comprehensive study of material composition at diverse locations and of how these properties might affect the faculties of individuals within such
neighbourhoods. Both parties will set themselves towards the end of revealing sites of execution and memory throughout London.
The summit will commence with an open meeting and luncheon within SPACE on Mare Street in Hackney at midday on Monday the 2nd August. Workshops, walks, river drifts and investigations originate each weekday from eleven at SPACE. Speculations will be unveiled from seven in the evening each day at the same location.
