Inspired by the Icelandic spectacle of the Aurora Borealis and subsequent research into chakra energy and frequencies, Lauren Baker presents The Colour Of Energy; a fully immersive, multi- sensory experience. The artist explores colour therapy and intuition, as she mixes the mediums of refracted light, subtle sound and movement, unique textures and expressive digital painting.
The audience are invited to experience a metaphysical interpretation of unseen energy, both feeling and listening to the energetic vibrations of the art. The artist states, ‘Everything has an energy and a frequency. We all have an energy or aura. I wish to visually and physically interpret unseen energy. These artworks are multi-sensory perceptions of energy’.
The unseen energies portrayed by the Colour of Energy pieces point to how Baker is concerned with both the known universe and the possible, the universe as understood through scientific knowledge and the universe as understood through sacred knowledge. Baker has combined work from the series to create this multi-sensory installation, using a Rife machine - a radionics device invented by Royal Raymond Rife in the 1930s - to deliver matching electromagnetic frequencies to the fingertips of visitors. Heightening the effect of experiencing the artwork - for some to the point of triggering an out-of-body sensation - the installation draws a line of connection between the individual, the chakras and a greater whole.
