Ilumina: Art Installation by Pablo Gonzalez Vargas
‘Ilumina’ is a 37-foot tall light installation conceived by Pablo Gonzalez Vargas. The massive interactive sculpture illuminated the Nevada desert at the 2017 Burning Man festival.
“The true experience of Ilumina though extended well beyond just a visual experience to gaze upon. With Ilumina, guests are invited to take part in an immersive three-minute long meditation and flow exercise that ushers them into a state of coherence and deep harmony with themselves, fellow participants, and the universe through a proprietary merger of modern technology and ancient design wisdom.
To start, biometric sensors are connected to the earlobes of each participant, which measures their unique state of coherence and averages them together. Ilumina’s dazzling lighting design and moving soundscapes respond to this unique algorithm. As the group becomes more coherent, the sculpture glows brighter and the music swells, creating a shared experience for participants.”Art Technology Video & Motion Posted on February 1, 2018
