Marcos Lutyens (UK/US)

 

Circatextian replaces our natural circadian rhythms with a phase resetting process. Each time a chime is heard and felt it is matched by a flash of light which is processed by brightness receptors in the eye, thus entraining us to a new type of clock tuned to the pushes instead of our night/day cycle.

 

Artist Bio:

Marcos Lutyens is an intermedia artist who has exhibited and performed internationally, including at dOCUMENTA(13), LACMA, MoCA, the Pompidou Centre, the Royal Academy, and the Venice Biennale. He has worked with various tools and approaches to explore the unconscious and associated schema. At dOCUMENTA(13), Lutyens completed 340 hypnosis performances over a 100-day period in a specially designed cabin. His work with the mind has lead him to develop events and exhibits that reflect research with specific social or ethnic groups such as the Muxhe, from the Zapotec culture in Southern Mexico. Works include external and internal data tracking and brain wave monitoring that are generally invisible to the casual observer and yet as important to us as the subjective processes of the inner mind.
