An interactive installation in Axle Contemporary’s Mobile Gallery
Shel Neymark with Steve Cox
Single drops of water fall into a small, dark pool. Concentric circles of waves flow across the surface. Light passing through dichroic glass sends shimmering color across the waves. Viewers wear a helmet equipped with electrodes, and as they relax and move into a meditative state their changing brain waves trigger additional drops creating more intricate patterns of waves on the water’s surface.
Visitors realize that they can effect changes in the physical world using their state of mind. Collaborator, Steve Cox (neuro-scientist/engineer) is working with his senior engineering students at Northern New Mexico College in Espanola to design and build the electronic systems used in this artwork.Get Directions
