Stach Szumski, Corporgonite, 2015, object: aluminium, pyrite, crystals, organic resin
Orgonite serves to transform negative energy from the environment (electrosmog, geopathic radiation, underground water courses, mental energies) into beneficial vital energy. According to the founder of the theory of orgone, Wilhelm Reich (an Austrian psychologist and psychiatrist), it is energy present in all living organisms throughout the entire universe.
Corporgonite is the first offensive orgonite that serves to paralyse negative energy generated by the rampant growth of corporate culture. It was created in collaboration with Andrzej Jarmułowicz, orgonite manufacturer from Zabrze, at his studio located in an abandoned office building.
