[ISEA2009] Artist Statement: Colm Clarke — DRMCHN

Artist Statement

DRMCHN is an audio/visual installation wherein the viewer is asked to close their eyes to observe. The pulsating lights stimulate the optical nerve to alter the brains electrical oscillations. The dream machine was originally conceived by Brion Gysin/William Burroughs (who were inspired by Walter’s ‘The Living Brain’). DRMCHN is being reformatted in digital and analogue form with accompanying audio translated from Bey’s Temporary Autonomous Zones.
