Angel Drawings Research
A scientific case study of ideomotor effect and automatic drawing!
Our angel drawings research is best viewed against the following directive statements of Rabbi Maimonides: "The motions of living beings, even those that are inarticulate, are said explicitly by Scripture to be due to angels." Modern science: "Whenever a movement instantly follows upon the idea of it, we have ideomotor action." And whenever we have ideomotor action, we are very close to creating Angel drawings!
Read how prominent Russian scientists discuss Angel drawing!
In 2001, Belarussian psychologist dr. Vladimir Sivitsky PhD (you see him standing next to a statue of Zoroaster in Kiev), invited me to be part of his scientific research of ideomotorics and match it with my experience of automatic writing and Angel drawings. Dr. Sivitsky heads the faculty of psychology of the International Humanitairian and Economics Institute (IHEI) in Minsk, Belarus.
On april 4, 2002, Dr. Sivitsky invited a group of prominent scientists to gather in Minsk and take part in a round table conference. The idea was to discuss and lecture about ideomotor effect, viewed against the perspective of my work as an ideomotor artist and an exhibition of Angel drawings.
Exhibition of Angel drawings in the Maxim Bogdanovich's Literary Museum, Minsk.
The conference was organised in the prestigious Maxim Bogdanovich's Literary Museum in Minsk where simultaniously my automatic drawings were exhibited. A video document of me doing my transcendental drawing work was showed to all participants before their comments were heared. The happening lasted the whole day and drew attention of national television and other media.
