Explore the exhibition “Brion Gysin: Dream Machine,” and discover how by working simultaneously in a variety of mediums, Gysin invented, collaborated, and subverted with considerable innovations that continue to influence musicians and writers, as well as visual and new media artists today. The exhibition includes over 300 drawings, books, paintings, photo-collages, films, slide projections, and sound works, as well as an original Dreamachine—a kinetic light sculpture that utilizes the flicker effect to induce visions when experienced with closed eyes. Create ink drawings inspired by Gysin’s work, giving abstract shape to your initials and transforming the letters into a personal glyph.
