Aim

Phosphenes are a subjective inner experience of light. Based on prior research, the team transforms these inner light experiences into visuals. With the light installation, Debora and Clifton like to create a spatial experience of tranquillity as well as strength, with which individuals can explore their mind and body. Especially wondering how humans will respond to looking at something with open eyes that is usually only perceived with closed eyes.

The team is convinced that inspiration can spark innovation. Together with experts and organidations from different fields of expertise, they want to make the positive effects of light more tangible and accessible to groups of people.
