Lia Chavez collaborated with rehabstudio for her piece, Poiesis / Tumult, 2014, images posted with permission of the artists.

New York-based visual and performance artist Lia Chavez collaborated with rehabstudio for a one-of-a-kind collaboration. Lia works with multimedia to explore the behavior of light in a state of meditation, and instead of a still, calm and quiet place, she’s discovered that deep meditation can in fact trigger visions of stroboscopic light and cataclysmic storm systems. She wanted to share this visceral experience with others, so she came to rehabstudio to help create her next piece: an 8-hour live performance in Dundee, Scotland. 

rehabstudio created custom code that reads Lia’s brainwaves and, via bluetooth, transmits its signal to a strobe light. We were able to control the signal’s frequency and strength, so that when Lia is in a deep state of meditation, the strobe flashes brightly and intensively, and less so when she is in intermediate states. Lia’s final performance turned out to be the perfect meeting of technology, science and art that inspired us all to collaborate in the first place.

Ganzeer, Swiss Arms, September 2012

Place: Keserne Basel, Basel, Switzerland

Description: Street mural created for Theatrefestival Basel that compares the number of deaths by gunshot in the US with the number of deaths during Egypt’s uprising. The public was invited to play the role of the “representative victims,” by laying on the ground and having their outlines traced. By presenting the “infographic” (which reveals that US victims are at least 8 times higher than Egyptian victims) alongside a quote by the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs, one is left to reexamine the notion of “conflict zones.” The public was also allowed to vote on whether or not, as a result, Switzerland should ban arms exports to the United States, which in fact is one of Switzerland’s major buyers.

The execution of this project would not have been in any way possible without Mr. Daniel Kunzler who is pictured on a not so pleasant day in the last image.
