Patent US6506148 - Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors

Patent US6506148 - Nervous system manipulation by electromagnetic fields from monitors | IELTS, ESP, EAP and CALL | Scoop.it
Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near ½ Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.

Andrew Mackenzie at Converge 2016 - Jackson's Art Blog

Andrew Mackenzie at Converge 2016 - Jackson's Art Blog | IELTS, ESP, EAP and CALL | Scoop.it
Converge 2016 opens today, 29 January 2016. Andrew Mackenzie is one of three invited artists, along with Steven MacIver and Sam Johnson, exhibiting at Converge 2016 Visual Arts Scotland. Andrew MacKenzie created three large-scale drawing for the exhibition. The drawings, made with many layers of pastel and gouache on paper, are based on drawings made of an abandoned service station and are 150x112cm. One of his drawings won the Open Eye Gallery Award. Andrew MacKenzie’s work is about landscape, but that landscape is muted and monochromatic. The bright part of the work, that stands out visually, is the line drawing hovering over the landscape that appears to be schematics or architectural plans. While very little of the surface area of the work is actually covered up by these few lines the affect is that the lines are much more visible than the landscape. The bright colour, straight lines and hard edges make you pay attention to the lines and almost miss the landscape, which becomes a sort of shadowy pattern. After you spend some time looking you can create more of a balance between the two and I found myself learning to shift my focus back and forth. Sometimes th
