Ghost Lab Reflections
"I want the Ghost Labs to be places where all who become part of them – researchers, partners or participants – come together with their senses fully open to the ‘blind field’ of what we normally regard as knowledge, with their hearts open to whatever it is the ghosts are trying to tell us, and with their wills set to see if we can begin to imagine what it is that needs to be done which is different to what’s been done before in AG’s words. I think this means that we have pull off a very difficult task: that of allowing the maximum flow of experimental creativity in responding to everyone’s ideas and taking them wherever they go and – at the same time – staying close to the kernel of AG’s original idea. The idea of a social haunting is both seductively simple and dauntingly complex. I feel that my role as PI is to make sure that we work stay close to both."
