For the next Hyphen Hub Salon there are presenting two leading artists working in the field of Light and Neurobiology. Erwin Redl and Stephen Auger work with the multisensory experience of light as a medium, exploring it from differing perspectives along the pathway of seeing - from the emitting source to retinal stimulation to cognitive centers in the brain.
Erwin Redl investigates the process of “reverse engineering” virtual reality and 3D computer models back into architectural environments by means of large scale light installations. For the Salon, he will use The Red Door space to install his mesmerizing recent work "Twists and Turns" (2014), a large-scale light installation using suspended clear glass plates to reflect animated blue and red lasers.
Stephen Auger explores boundaries between sight and other senses, challenging viewers to consider “sensing” as a distinct and conscious form of perception. For the Salon, Auger will be talking about qualities of light as they pertain to perception and art, then lead a lively discussion with the audience.
The night is guest-curated and moderated by Koan Jeff Baysa.
It will be followed by a Q&A with the artists as well as drinks
