CHAKR - Visualizing Altered States of Consciousness


CHAKR by PALLAVI SEN is a visualization system designed to represent the dynamic alterations in ones' states of consciousness while listening to rave music. Using speculative technology, a combination of electroencephalogram (EEG), head sets, and hologram projection, the visualization aims to bridge the gap between the experience of altered states of consciousness and the awareness of these shifting states. CHAKR redefines rave experiences as a space for “significant experiences” rather than pure escapism.


A visual artist whose projects span over
a variety of mediums.
My vision as a creative individual is based on nature itself, particularly the audio-visual elements that come together to form the source of energy that nature is in itself.
I explore the amalgamation of mystical & psychedelic themes with optical illusions and florescent pallets which makes my signature style - dark, enigmatic and metaphysical.
Currently exploring how technology and immersive experiences can stimulate altered states of mind in different spaces.”
