Peter Blamey is a Sydney-based artist. His work explores themes of sound and energy, and the reimagining of technology. His practice is typically grass roots, and frequently involves establishing interactions between disparate everyday technologies in order to produce performances, artworks and installations that investigate the relationships between people, devices and their environments, and question accepted notions of connectivity, variability and use.

PRT (PRIMAL REGRESSION THERAPY)
“Never before have people been so infantilized, made so dependent on the machine for everything; as the earth rapidly approaches its extinction due to technology, our souls are shrunk and flattened by its pervasive rule. Any sense of wholeness and freedom can only return by the undoing of the massive division of labour at the heart of technological progress. This is the liberatory project in all its depth.”
