We Are Beings of Light
ABOUT THE INSTALLATION
A biophoton or Ultra-weak Photon Emission, (UPE) is a kind of light particle that is emitted by all living things. Though it exists in the visible and ultraviolet spectrum, in order for us to see it, our eyes would have to be about 1,000 times more sensitive. The light emitted from each individual being forms the “aura” and is directly related to the body’s 7 and 13 chakra system.
Each chakra or energy point has a sacred geometry form associated with it. There are 7 Common Basic Shapes which often show up in people’s Auras – these are the Platonic Solids – and each has its own meaning which you can learn. Cube, Sphere, Icosahedron, Dodecahedron, Octahedron, Tetrahedron, Pyramid. There are the 7 ‘Chakra Colours’ – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green/Pink, Blue, Purple, White – which, when associated with a Sacred Shape, specify more detail about exactly what is going on in your aura or in another person’s, bringing helpful insights to your life.
The project explored this concept of “light beings” and the “chakras” that compose them. The installation worked with intersections of geometrical forms associated with each chakra.
