The experiment goes down from noon to midnight on Saturday at 108 Market St.
When visitors stop by the building – disguised as a shop – they’ll discover a few “Blue Velvet” secrets. As they explore the installation, which will include a spiritual medium, a peep show and, starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, an upstairs speakeasy, surveillance cameras will capture their experience.
Fernando revealed a few details about the piece during a peek inside the building earlier this week.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen – I’m not sure what the footage will look like at the end – but that’s really what’s interesting about it for me. You don’t know how it’s going to turn out,” the long-time Cucalorus volunteer and artist said. “The whole basis is a social and psychological experiment with heavy documentation.”
The experience also will include tapas, two “test subjects” (you may be able to feed one of them sausages for a small fee) AND a screening of David Lynch’s “Meditation, Creativity, Peace” at about 2 p.m. Fernando also will raffle off tickets for free spiritual readings.
