Carsten Nicolai | Rota

Fondation Vasarely, Aix-en-Provence

Installation, Germany, 2009

Visual artist and musician, Carsten Nicolai is one of the most active participants on the German minimal, electronic scene today. With Rota, he shows us a piece of work hovering on the border between art and science. Playing with our perception, this luminous, sound sculpture is able to influence our cerebral activity by stimulating certain functions of the brain placing us in different states of relaxation, awareness and even meditation. (translation by Caroline Newman).
