Up to five visitors are invited to sit on a bench in the middle of the cylindrical room, in which the screen of numerous LED lights covers the wall, and to close their eyes. Within their minds they see a stream of images: birds flying, people passing by, circles and spirals swirling and whatever else they can imagine. Each person “constructs” his/ her very own “movie”, a possible reminiscence of something long forgotten.
LED lights are programmed to flicker and visitors are exposed to the flashing light, which gives rise to a quasi-hallucinatory visual experience of moving images behind their closed eyes. The subjective hallucinatory “movie” is enclosed in one’s mind and imperceptible to anyone else, yet the experience of seeing is shared.
“The realm of the subjective is enlarged in an unexpected direction. An observer-centered objectivity (endo objectivity) is added to the traditional (exo) objectivity. The microscopic chaos in the observer codetermines the texture of the dream. Some testable predictions can be derived“.
