getting away from it all. only for two minutes. regaining fresh energy.
Moonwalk is no ordinary mood light. It transfers the mood aspect further by taking advantage of a unique psychological effect:
the Ganzfeld effect
used by light artist James Turrell
...the nervous system starts to reorientate on lesser stimuli, signals from the subconscious occur, body and mind calm down, and the dream begins...
free project, 2017
Inconspicious at first sight, moonlight blends in smoothly with its surroundings. Though no interaction has happened yet it already raises questions about material, weight and last but not least functionality.
As inconsiderable as the first impression might have been, perception shifts when turning on the apparent globe. Surface texture provided the incentive to the model's title.
A more detailed look provides knowledge about interior. A rechargeable power bank provides approximately 4 hours of service but still blends in smoothly into the circular, round shape of moonlight. Foam secures a comfortable fitting when in use.
Both color and shape give room to plenty of associations. 16 hues are accessible through the remote's shortcuts. Smooth color transitions extend the perception of tint.
Wearing moonlight reveals its function. A matted, illuminated and absolutely homogeneous surface covers the visual field. After only a little while the slowly fading colors lead to a visual stimuli withdrawal.Only a few minutes are enough to experience light and dream.
