Radiant Energy is a scientific process in which energy emitted by a source in the surrounding environment enters an open system. From a body of research that examines the relationship between science and pseudoscience, Radiant Energy II references the design of early scientific and alchemical laboratory stands, considering the appropriation of scientific concepts as explanations for the ideas of alternative and marginalised knowledge.
