Completion of this sophisticated project took two years (1994-1996). The outcome was a combination of a computer-generated 3D environment and painted textures and drawings. The participant controlled the virtual space by means of brainwaves (Alpha, Beta) through which it was possible to change colours, emit positive or negative impulses (objects, symbols, fog), move around (change speed) and finally achieve the goal of the whole mission – the light. The symbolism of the image loosely interconnected several religious beliefs and interpretations of afterlife and the individual elements reflected the viewer’s emotional state at the given moment. The artist gave visual form to her visions and the viewer navigated through them by means of his or her own emotions.
The “Lanterne magique” exhibition presented the works of seven Czech artists working with new technologies.
