Book launch – „Physical Factors of the Historical Process“, Alexander Chizhevsky | Sound by Robin Watkins

“Life is a phenomenon. Its production is due to the influence of the dynamics of the cosmos on a passive subject. It lives due to dynamics, each oscillation of organic pulsation is coordinated with the cosmic heart in a grandiose whole of nebulas, stars, the sun and the planet.”
– Alexander L Chizhevsky

Join us for the launch of a solar publication on the eve of the midsummer solstice, 2017.

Atlas Projectos new publication brings together a reprint of “Physical Factors of the Historical Process” by Alexander Chizhevsky (1897-1964), newly output solar cycle graphs from 1750 until 2032 by SILSO (Royal Observatory of Belgium) and an afterword by Robin Watkins.

Alexander Chizhevsky is recognized as the founder of solar-earth research, having proved that the Sun's activity has an effect on many terrestrial phenomena. Chizhevsky proposed that human history is influenced by the eleven-year peaks in sunspot activity, triggering humans en masse to act upon existing grievances and complaints through revolts, revolutions, civil wars and wars between nations.

By establishing a statistical parallel between solar activity and collective cycles such as global conflicts and epidemics, this publication functions as a speculative extension of Chizhevsky’s theories and work. Edited by Laura Preston and published by Atlas Projectos, the two-coloured risograph contains 31 diagrams and 88 pages, bound with gauzed red glue in an edition of 200 copies.

For the occasion a site-specific radio environment will be installed by Robin Watkins containing unprocessed electrostatic field recordings that have been captured during the past 8 years of the solar wind, human electrical environments, midges and the magnetosphere.
