In psychology an aura is a phenomena that precedes a change in psychological state. Typically these are visual phenomena known as scintillating scotoma but can also take the form of auditory and olfactory hallucinations such as the smell of peanut butter and dead fish. In the foreground is the sculptural work entitled Dead Fish and Peanut Butter. Suspended from the ceiling is a crescent shaped aluminum armature that holds 60-25 watt lights. These lights flicker at 7.6 Hz, the same rate at which the synapses in the brain fire. When standing in front of the work with eyes closed the photic driving of the light causes optical hallucinations. In the background is the sculptural work How To Kill A Mime, 2013.This work traces the imaginary path of a bullet inside the illusory glass box of a mime. Ricocheting off the hypothetical walls and ceiling, lengths of cold rolled steel bar create a scribble scotoma; a type of visual aura. Experienced by both Dostoyevsky and Lewis Carroll these auras are accompanied by the sensation of ecstasy.
