On 21 October 1967, hippes set out to levitate the Pentagon in protest against the Vietnam War.
In theory, super consciousness would be drawn down or 'unfolded' onto the earthly plane and war would be over forever.
The artwork 'Super Consciousness' quotes visually from a button badge created at the time to publicise the planned levitation.
described the levitation as 'a happening' that 'dissolved the authority of the Pentagon psychologically'.
'Super Consciousness' is part of socialart.work, a mass public art project by public artist
calling for greater social justice.
It aims to create debate about power and gender, women's equality and masculinity, alternative forms of economic and social organisation, black power, and solidarity between people from different backgrounds and ethnicities.
It includes posters, publications and events supported in 2018-19 by the artist's residency with leading Out of Home media company
Clear Channel UK.
