The Telepathy Project


The Telepathy Project consists of a series of intimate telepathic exchanges performed publicly.

For four hours over five evenings, artists Sean Peoples and Veronica Kent will isolate themselves from each other in the front windows of the Forum Theatre, with no way of communicating, other than telepathically. Every 15 minutes the artists will write down the outcome of their most recent telepathic exchange on time-coded Post-It notes. These will then be stuck on to the glass window for the passing Flinders Street audience to read. This growing archive of notes will be written in a stream-of-consciousness, unguarded, honest and confessional style. The notes will be on display 24 hours a day for the duration of the show and will form text for a printed publication to be produced at the end of the season.

The Telepathy Project’s closing night promises to be a significant event: the artists will be released from five nights of telepathic exchanges inside their glass enclosures.

Sean Peoples and Veronica Kent’s work is inspired by a desire to experience other possible ways of being in relation to each other. Both Veronica and Sean are interested in setting up encounters that test and provoke such relationships, both between each other and a broader public. These encounters are realised and documented in a variety of forms including videos, online archives, lectures, telepathically curated exhibitions, drawings and performances.
