New #Alchemists #art and #science collide [#geekgirl]

Lu Yang

New Alchemists comprises a diverse suite of works by Australian and International artists exploring ideas of futuristic biologies and post-human engagements within the broad intersections of art and science.

Paralleling a view of the artist as contemporary alchemist, the selected works channel experiences beyond our accessible human and non-human worlds. Through play, ambiguity and provocation, the works engage in narratives that collapse our sense of familiarity and embodied otherness with the world around us.

Lu Yang Delusional Mandala is all about neuroscience, a continuing area of interest for the artist. Yang makes use of the principle of the stereotactic system, deep brain stimulation and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (RTMS) to the deep limbic system in order to extend delusions, substituting religious perspective and fugacious meditation on the material world to produce ‘objective’ delusions.
