Since the end of the Second World War and throughout the Cold War, devices have been developed which aim to affect the human nervous system, and ultimately manipulate thinking in society as a whole. In general, little is known about the locations and operations of these weapons of mass mind control and even less is known about the scientists who work tirelessly to counter these insidious technologies.

This project documents the research undertaken by Dr. Nadia Kelbova in the areas of electromagnetic, gravitational and light waves using her Psychotronic Weapon Deflector and her goal of protecting humanity from the sinister influences of these mechanisms of social engineering.

A mixture of scientific experimentation and performance, interwoven with humour form the key elements of this project. The aim of this work is to investigate the intoxicating authority of the photograph itself and to draw attention to the dangers of credulity.
