PechaKucha 09.06.16 : Lucid dreaming Art and Neuroscience

I am taking part in the exciting PechaKucha held every 3 months this year in Bexhill, in the stunning De La warr Pavillion. My talk will focus on Art and Neuroscience in Lucid Dreaming for personal experience and as an academic researcher.

Contemporary Surrealist, Luciana’s practice focuses on the investigation of sleep, specifically the phenomenon of Lucid Dreaming, where the dreamer experiences consciousness-like awareness during the dream.

The event will take place at 7pm on the second floor in the DLWP Café/Bar

Video excerpt of Phrontesterion

“Phrontesterion” – Luciana’s augmented Dreamachine with individual EEG monitoring, a participatory artwork with guest interview/ feedback session in The Old Drill Hall, Lincoln, October 27-28 2015 for The Frequency Festival.

The Phrontesterion (Dreamachine and percipient’s EEG sonified ) was installed in The Drill Hall upstairs, where we were visited by the public who had booked an appointment for a vision, a dream and a journey. Using the IBVA software and hardware the brainwaves were visualised and later transcribed by Luciana to the subject whilst they were professionally and discretely interviewed by the assistant Ms Rose.
