Any ideas?

Deat List,

Hi, I'm a post-graduate research student at Glasgow School of Art,
specialising in Fine Art.

My research is currently geared towards the use of infra-sonics in a
Fine Art context. I apologise if this seems basic, but my background and
training is in the visual arts as opposed to the sciences. I'm
attempting to generate frequencies between 11 and 22hz with sufficient
amplitude that they will be physically perceivable by the "viewer".
These are from low frequency recordings and will then be used in a
gallery situation.

My question to the list is:

Can anyone point me to information (Books or web, preferably simple-ish)
regarding the psychological and the physiological effects of
infra-sonics on human beings? I am aware of the alleged toiletry
consequences of going too low (6hz?) and I wish to stimulate my audience
not disable them.

Many thanks for any aid  possible.

Ben Woodeson.
