LUCIA No.03 is an innovative kinetic device which invokes a unique visual experience in the viewer’s mind; an artwork created by the individuals’ brain.
Controlled by patented hard and software, LUCIA No.03 uses a combination of flickering LEDs and constant light to stimulate the brains’ alpha waves and produce an optical experience, which is entirely unique to the viewer. Whilst sitting in front of the light, moving gently with eyes shut, the viewers’ mind automatically creates a series of images, taking them on their own personal visual journey.
Developed by Dr. Dirk Proeckl (Neurologist and Psychologist) and Dr. Engelbert Winkler (Psychologist and Psychotherapist) in Austria after many years of research, the kinetic light device stimulates neurotransmitters that facilitate harmonic patterns of the frequencies in different parts of the brain, which are usually only attainable after practicing meditation for many years. LUCIA No.03 creates a sense of deep relaxation, dissipating the sensation of time and space, allowing the viewer to experience different dimensions of the self.
Art, Light, Brain and Mind.
In these changing times LUCIA No.03 challenges traditional notions of what art is and its role in society. As research about light uncovers yet more possibilities for its use, the brain continues to fascinate and baffle scientists all around the world. The mind is what the brain does and vice versa. The melody of the light, with its varying frequencies, brings together these four elements of the human sphere in a simple and sophisticated way.
