Magnetic Levitation investigates belief, religious architecture, rituals and staging of objects. Over a year I observed a group in London, “The Aetherius society”, who believe in storing and unloading their energy from a battery. This trilogy is inspired by the magical formations of the Pinhole Camera, the book “Physics Impossible” by physicist Michio Kaku and the Orgone Accumulators built by psychoanalyst Wilhem Reich from 1940: machines that collect and transfer orgone energy to a human being.
