Fakir Musafar Exhibit: Paul King Walkthrough

I’m still sitting on a few dozen photographs from the awe inspiring IN PURSUIT OF THE SPIRIT exhibit celebrating the life and work of Fakir Musafar that the good folks at the Body Piercing Archive set up at this year’s APP Conference and Expo; when we finally get the new issue of NODAL POINTS sent to print I’m going to try and commit some time to writing a piece about it.

Until then- I bought a brand new go-pro for this year’s APP Conference, and for some reason left it in my hotel room every time I’d go down to the Fakir exhibit; so everything I shot was on my iPhone8+ and as such is lacking in quality. And because of the size of the files… I ran out of space on the first day.

I think the PRESS ribbon I was wearing was a bit of a stretch.

So as much as I’d like to share Paul King’s 1 entire walkthrough, this short clip- which discusses the first time Roland Loomis/Fakir Musafar had an understanding of consciously changing the body- will have to do.
