A HUMAN INFUENCING MACHINE
The Air Loom installed in the Laing Gallery, Newcastle (2002)
You have arrived at the web site for artist Rod Dickinson's project to reconstruct a little known mind control machine from the 18th century.
The machine was drawn and described in great detail by one time spy and tea broker James Tilly Matthews in 1810.
The reconstruction, 10m x 10m x 6m is made from oak, brass and leather and has been exhibited at the Laing Gallery Newcastle (Oct 2002 - Jan 2003), and the Prinzhorn Museum and Collection in Heidelberg Germany (Oct 2006 - April 2007).
