The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents “Psychic Projections/Photographic Impressions: Paranormal Photographs from the Jule Eisenbud Collection on Ted Serios,” January 26-March 27. For several years in the 1960s, psychiatrist Jule Eisenbud, a faculty member at the University of Denver, conducted experiments with Ted Serios, a Chicago man who possessed an apparent ability to place images from his mind onto Polaroid material using psychic energy. Over the course of these experimental sessions, Serios produced a vast body of photographs, or “thoughtographs,” that continue to baffle researchers and critics to this day.
At 6 p.m., Thursday, February 3, Stephen Braude, professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy, will present a public lecture on Serios’s work.
The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, noon-4 p.m., on Thursday until 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 1-5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call ext. 5-2270.
