Tainted Knowing (unfounded enthusiasm, fraudulent texts, hidden sympathy), 2020
The Great Tree of Pagan Superstition makes visible the light through which we have unwittingly come to perceive certain ideas. Ideas like those that imbue accompanying objects: Etheric Ward and the Tower Busters. All of which are made of orgonite. Orgonite is an occult substance of contemporary DIY cult status. It is said to transmute, among other things, the harmful energy of electro-magnetic frequencies. Orgonite is named for Wilhelm Reich’s 1930’s concept of Orgone which is variously described as universal life force, esoteric energy or pseudoscience.
