I’m really interested in conceptual art, and there’s a certain kind of slapstick-y thing that happens sometimes in the history of conceptual art where there’s a kind of gag or prankster-like vibe to the way that a concept is supposedly creating a work. It seemed to me that ESP research was another comparable situation, where a concept in someone’s mind is somehow acting on the world. So it was just an intuition on how to set up a situation where concepts are in the driver’s seat. Supposedly.
