About the Production

RHODOPSIN is an original light and sound installation organized by WSOHOIDPS (A SHIP IN THE WOODS) which first premiered at ARTSD’14. For RHODOPSIN 2.0, we have asked architect and artist Patrick Shields to create a revised version of the structure for WoW 2015 Festival. This project is an ongoing collaboration between WSOHOIDPS, Salk Institute neurobiologist John Reynolds, sound artist Greg Smaller and vision scientist Patrick Cavanagh. RHODOPSIN aims to encourage visitors to think about the process of perception and consider the brain’s role in actively constructing, rather than simply relaying, reality; as experienced in an afterimage.
