Ethometric Museum

An immersive journey into a hypnotic and mesmerising world from the artist who created the world renowned show "Siren"

 

Have you ever wondered how electricity could make you feel happy? Listen carefully, it's not going to be quite like anything you will have heard (or seen) before. You are going to be taken into the Ethometric Museum, a gallery of amazing electrical curiosities.

Inside you will bathe in the resonant Ethometric waves of the 'Sonionic Analyser', marvel as the 'Multiwave Oscillethergraph Generator' begins to spin, and wonder at the mysteries of the 'Ethomagnetrons'. Each machine emits specific harmonic frequencies and through their precise manipulation the skilled operator will realign your ‘super-electrical field’. You will feel happy.

Fascinating, compelling and hauntingly beautiful. Ethometric Museum is an immersive journey into a hypnotic and mesmerising world.

 

Commissioned by OCM and supported by BAC as part of the Scratch Festival
