On October 28, 2015, Lucy Pringle presented the second lecture in the Taboo Subjects series, Crop Circles: Windows of Perception, in the Outside Design classroom space.

Pringle discussed the complexity of crop circles: from the occurrence of man-made circles, to hoaxes, to scientific findings that reveal the presence of energy fields, to forms that would be impossible for humans to create. She showed many of her aerial photographs of the circles, two of which expressed the number for Pi in beautiful and complex geometric formations.

Her recent research is focused on the potential healing ability of crop circles. Aside from helping cure headaches and digestive issues, she has found that encounters with crop circles may help temporarily reduce the shaking of those with Parkinson’s Disease. Pringle’s research continues and can be followed on her website.
