In an unheated shed near Stapleton, Nebraska, in the late 1950s, artist Emery Blagdon began twisting pieces of old wire into patterns with pliers, attaching aluminum foil, beads, ribbons, and an infinite array of everyday cast-off items. His work became part of a unique art environment that he created, believing it could generate natural energy from the Earth and help people attain better health.
This film shares the stories of Blagdon, his “Healing Machine,” and the preservation of this work. A community conversation about art and healing follows the screening.
Discussion follows screening.
