>This event will attune itself to artists=B9 inheritance of the mediumistic
>legacy, with contributions from artists and theorists. The weblogs of
>psychic enthusiasts have recently voiced anxieties about the ghostbusting
>properties of mobile phones. The perception that they may interrupt and
>disperse phantom wavelengths, suggests that the tele-empathy which has
>enabled electronic media to become a favoured site of haunting is not
>automatic. Media may afterall prove to be the location where the phantasmic
>chose to dictate its own obituary.
