Spectral Psychography is a form of psychic mark-making invented by Los Angeles based artists Christian Cummings and Michael Decker. The Psychographer uses an adapted Ouija device (a planchette) to collaborate artistically with unseen forces. Blindfolded, the hand forms an image while the mind remains unaware of what the hand is doing. Since 2004 Cummings and Decker have been collaborating with ghosts in the service of drawing, painting, poetry, sculpture and musical composition. To date they have created hundreds of Spectral Psychographs and have collaborated with the likes of Barnett Newman, Paul Klee, Walt Disney, Kieth Harring, Tony Smith, David Smith and Norman Rockwell (to name a few).
