Shuffle

Item consists of a video by Douglas Waterman. An insert in the U-matic tape box describes the video as follows:

"A static electrical charge is generated by shuffling my clothed feet over an insulator, and by postponing contact with elements having characteristics which would operate as outlets for the charges being generated. The stored charge emits an electrical fields that draws the particles (ashes) toward it. A proportion of the charge from my hand jumps to the particles as the particles rise to and contact my hand. The particles have received an overcharge which opposes it to its source, so is driven back to its resting place. Dispersal time for the particles' energy is (approx. 10 sec.) allowing it to be activated again, initiating another cycle as the particles slowly spread out."
