In Radiant Thought, Vermont artist Clay Mohrman creates an immersive light and sound installation centering on his personal response to emotional processing and managing anxiety. Comprised of plexiglass and lights, and programmed to mimic the neurochemical reactions of the brain, the sculpture responds to a meditative, ambient audioscape. Mohrman’s 8-foot sculpture is suspended from the center of the gallery and envelopes the viewer in a captivating exploration of meditation and its ability to evoke relaxation, calm, and mindfulness.
Working with collaborators Brittany Mae on audio and George Philbrick on interactive technology, Mohrman draws upon his experience as a designer and maker to create an installation imbued with purpose. Viewers experience a transformative process inspired by Mohrman’s relationship with mental wellbeing and his desire to promote the therapeutic benefits of art in public spaces.
