27.11.14: The Explorers Club, Lewes: Revelations by Flicker, Dreamachines and Electroencephalographic Signals in Art ,
Luciana is an artist augmenting consciousness and is currently in residence in The Department of Informatics at the University of Sussex. The invention of the Electroencephalograph (EEG) for monitoring brainwaves, and its routine employment in medical diagnostics offers raw and quantifiable information about the brain. Not bad for a highly sensitive system invented for more esoteric reasons – to prove to the scientific community the existence of telepathy ! The combination of brainwave monitoring with the early adoption of stroboscopes in neuro-physiological research produced side effects – induced hallucinations named ‘Flicker’. Luciana Haill will give a historical overview, with examples of artistic outcomes, including one of her own – based on flicker with Neurofeedback techniques.
Starts 7pm, Fisher Street Studios, 3 Fisher Street, Lewes, United Kingdom
