Various printed and oral sources suggest that residing or working at a Hartmann’s knot may result in health issues and technological disruptions, potentially leading to severe consequences, even fatality. While the network is often regarded as a theoretical construct, it serves as a dynamic reference point for diverse interpretations within different cultural contexts.

Throughout the residency, I intend to explore and speculate on the areas of positive or negative energy associated with local military archaeology. This exploration involves creating geological alignments that extend beyond our perceptual awareness, offering a unique perspective on the interplay between ancient practices, environmental energies, and contemporary interpretations.

This project delves into ancient knowledge practices aimed at harnessing energy fields emanating from the environment. Drawing inspiration from the controversial modern concept known as Ley Lines, as conceptualized by the physician Ernest Hartmann, it proposes that the Earth is enveloped by an intricate network of invisible magnetic lines. These lines form a consistent grid around the planet, aligning approximately every two meters along compass lines. The adverse impact these lines exert on inhabitants of a particular location is believed to be a contributing factor to elevated rates of mortality and illness. The manifestation of Hartmann’s network becomes apparent in nature through weakened or dead trees in hedges and structural cracks in man-made constructions. These detrimental influences reach their peak at a Hartmann’s knot, where two radiation lines intersect.

 

 

 

 

 

The artistic process took place in different ways. One of the key pieces to structure the narrative was an old photograph that I found by chance the previous month, at an antiques fair in Kadıköy, Istanbul (picture on the side). This image shows a human figure with its back slightly inclined trying to touch a luminous sphere. This photograph immediately caught my attention as I had already worked on issues relating to electromagnetic anomalies and luminous phenomena in previous projects.
