Description

This catalogue for Noxious Sector’s “World Telekinesis Competition”, held from May 16–June 14, 2008 at Deluge Contemporary Art Gallery in Victoria, BC, documents the events in which 31 teams from around the world committed to spending an hour attempting to remotely influence the behaviour of a candle using only their minds. The book provides a thorough documentation of each of the teams, their members’ profiles, tournament boards and match results. The comprehensive essay by Ted Hiebert begins with a quote by Jean Baudrillard, “Facing a world that is unintelligible and problematic, our task is clear: we must make that world even more unintelligible, even more problematic.” This quote could also be Noxious Sector’s guiding aesthetic for this project. Curated by Ted Hiebert, Doug Jarvis and Jackson Two Bears.
