LUX

February 2021  

28 Meditations / 1 Month

Lux is a project by Arantxa Araujo in Collaboration with Vicious Ocultos and Gabriel Chakraji.

Hosted daily at The Interior Beauty Salon.

LUX is a virtual invitation to show up daily for an experimental meditative practice. It merges meditation, scientific research and experiential technologies in an aesthetic expression. The idea is to visit The Interior Beauty Salon every day for the month of February to exercise our awareness.

Individuals are invited to observe and listen, both internally and externally, for one minute attempting to view without judgment or expectation, simply noticing the video, and also our emotions, our thoughts, and our breath.

Could fully immersing ourselves into an audiovisual experience expand our consciousness?

On February 28, 2021, LUX culminated a 28 -day journey with a half-hour virtual practice, and a participatory performance live-streamed through Zoom and YouTube from The Leslie-Lohman Museum. LUX invited us to show up and immerse ourselves in an audiovisual oasis of consciousness, and to allow visualization and meditation to expand our awareness and to dissolve any duality between subject/object.

The Performance was followed by conversation about our shared experiences. This involved Arantxa Araujo, Gabriel Chakarji, Mariana Uribe, Anna Costa e Silva, and Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo.

The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art is the only dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world with a mission to exhibit and preserve LGBTQ art and foster the artists who create it.
