The aim of this research residency is to investigate issues related to the electromagnetic environment and its relationship to the human body. On one hand the exploration leads to the study of bio-electromagnetism and its historical context, including the ancient science of alchemy. On the other hand it examines contemporary spatial art practice in our “plugged-in” urban environment. The topics are connected to collaborative projects positioned fully or partially in Montréal. The intended outcomes of the research include publications and a series of public events.
