We are now seeking written contributions for the next volume in the Black Mirror series: Black Mirror 2 – Elsewhere.
This volume will examine how the inner world of visions, spirits, dreams and magic has been explored by contemporary and modern artists, film makers and other cultural practitioners (1900 – present day).
Black Mirror 0 enjoyed another launch at the Gallery at AUB on 21st Jan 2015.
A welcome speech by the deputy Vice Chancellor Emma Hunt was followed by a question and answer session, eliciting responses from the three editors, Robert Ansell, Judith Noble and Dominic Shepherd and chaired by Professor Oren Liebermann. As well as throwing light on the first book and the network, areas discussed included the talismanic book and the dichotomy of using academic tools to elucidate on the hidden or occult.
October 30th 2014 saw the launch of the first Black mirror volume: Black Mirror 0 – Territory, edited by Judith Noble, Dominic Shepherd and Robert Ansell and published by Fulgur Esoterica. The launch was held at the Cobb Gallery, London and included a sonic performance by Mark Titchner and Alex Tucker entitled The Fool.
