Tonight’s exploration ( originally from a sketch ) ; I am with two Dreamachines, 78rpm and 45rpm for dual asynchronous peripheral flicker, Alpha-Theta brainwave stimulation: undulating relaxation .. entrainment with eyes closed. Entraining the analogue way. Respect to Brion Gysin, Ian Somerville for their design intuitively and synchronously created the same time as Dr Grey Walter described the hallucinations and visual side effects of ‘flicker’ and ‘form constants’ seen behind closed eyes.
See you on 30.06.17 in Breaking Convention, 9.30am, in The Sabina Rooms
I have a very visual Keynote illustrating my talk during :
NON DRUG STATES: MIND & MACHINE :
Luciana Haill ‘#Flicker, #EEG & #Dreamachines’ 30th June, @breakingcon
Revelations by Flicker, Dreamachines and Electroencephalographic signals in art
How did ordinary tools in the Neurophysiology department become means for spiritual enlightenment ?
Advance booked tickets to the entire weekend symposium essential.
Book tickets for an individual session from £10 for 20 minutes (with optional extra for brainwave recording )with PandoraStar here :
05.05.17 – 06.05.17 Hackstock2017 – Opening times – 10.30am-18.30pm. Luciana and her team offers you the opportunity to book an individual session with the latest technological genius in psychedelic strobing white light, and potentially have your brainwaves monitored and recorded. Just curious ? You can compare this with a Dreamachine – an iconic kinetic light sculpture setup in our Arts Laboratory. Working with the Brainmachine (IBVA) EEG monitors Luciana and her team can combine recording the brainwaves of participants whilst they are experiencing the wonderful phenomena ‘PandoraStar’ – the latest in Stroboscopic Light Therapies. This is a non-intrusive form of light therapy, which
concentrates the mind and involves the client closing their eyes under a flickering light machine. The session can provide a client with relief from tension, relieving stiff muscles and joints in the physical body. The session is highly relaxing and can have a profound relief upon the negative effects of stress.
We will also have a classic Dreamachine designed by artist Bryon Gysin in the 1960s spinning proudly on a record player for drop-in anytime. I will also take part in Talkaoke at 11.30am on the friday and have the East Room setup as an ongoing Hypnagogic Art of Neuroscience laboratory with Brainmachine (IBVA) and bookable individual Pandorastar sessions.
