CV

CURRICULUM VITAE : LUCIANA HAILL             D.O.B : 06.08.1973

L1150958Luciana Haill explores and measures brainwaves during liminal states of sleep and vivid / lucid dreaming in her Fine Artworks. She is concerned in esoteric ways of accessing  The Visionary, sometimes using contemporary photic entrainment devices including classic Dreamachines. She is an Honorary fellow in the Department of Psychology in Greenwich University,  London. Her participatory installations, talks and performances have taken place internationally. Her techniques involve Neurofeedback –  a training process using technology to provide you with more information about what your brain is doing. She has appeared on TV and Radio triggering 3D spatialised sounds via brainwaves. She is currently working in collaboration with musician Arthur Brown on a new piece of performative EEG art.
