REMOTE VIEWING (2009) a book about MacWilliam’s practice with essays and contributions from Ciaran Carson, Brian Dillon, Martha Langford, Slavka Sverakova and Marina Warner is published by Black Dog Publishing, Editor Karen Downey.
’Remote Viewing’ is the first significant published volume of work by Susan MacWilliam, an artist who has spent over ten years exploring cases of paranormal activity. The scope of her work is wide, encompassing research into psychic medium, x-ray vision, optograms and dermo-optical perception. Through participation in experiments, detailed exploration of archives and interviews with leading researchers and families of the subjects, MacWilliam has developed an expansive body of video and installation work which mediates between the worlds of art and psychical science. Published in 2009 on occasion of MacWilliam’s solo show ’Remote Viewing’ where she represented Northern Ireland at the 53rd Venice Biennale.
