Botanicalls and Center for Tactical Magic

8pm, Tuesday Night, May 15

Machine Project
1200 D North Alvarado Street
Los Angeles, CA 90026
213-483-8761

“Join us for an evening of psychobotany with performances, presentations, and live demos by Botanicalls and the Center for Tactical Magic.

“Botanicalls allows plants to place phone calls to ask for human help. When a plant on the Botanicalls network needs water, it can call a person and ask for exactly what it needs. The Botanicalls team will be on-hand to demonstrate their unique system of human/plant communication and promote inter-species understanding.

“The Center for Tactical Magic presents a performance lecture exploring the magic and mystery of psychobotany. Ranging from Moses’ consultation with a burning bush to the Pentagon’s recent development of ‘sentinel plants,’ [Arthur‘s ‘Applied Magic(k)’ columnist] Aaron Gach of the CTM provides a brief history of plants as purveyors of knowledge. Audience members will also participate in a live demonstration of extra-sensory perception mediated through the cooperation of living plants.”
