Energy Booster (replica)
Wood and bronze paint, 2009
An invitation for group interaction
The Energy Booster is a replica of a structure I spotted in a found image of an American UFO cult trying to contact as of yet unidentified life forms in space. The top part of the structure is based on the pyramid of Cheops, believed to have geometric properties that "boost" this connection with the higher planes. Holding hands in a circle around the structure is meant to provide the energy needed for the structure to work.
