Through the use of video, photography and sculptural installation, Susan MacWilliam has created pieces of work on wide scoping aspects of the paranormal including accounts of materializing mediums and clairvoyants, optograms, trance, x-ray vision and dermo-optical perception, exploring specific myths and histories, challenging ideas about presentation and the credibility of an image. Susan MacWilliam: Remote Viewing features the artist's most recent work and her research into mediums, hysteria and psychology. Organised into three main sections the book looks extensively at her recent work including the three pieces being put forward for the Venice Biennale 2009; F-L-A-M-M-A-R-I-O-N, Eileen and Dermo Optics. With supporting essays from a collection of prestigious writers and experts in the field, including poet Ciaran Carson, Venice Biennale curator Karen Downey, art writer Slavka Sverakova, Brian Dillon and Martha Langford, and excerpts from correspondences with parapsychologists, Remote Viewing is an extensive, in-depth look into MacWilliam's artistic practice and the inspiration behind these major projects.
