“Lumen” is a picture of a particle of light moving through a synapse along a neural network. This particle of light extinguishes fear, and so has a positive effect on the mind and also on the heart and all other body organs and cells.  Neuroscientists such as Andrei, with whom I had an illuminating conversation at the U of C, are working toward a greater understanding of neural processes, so that particles more of light than of darkness may run through our networks. Like scientists, in doing our work most artists also aim to improve quality of life.


Lumen:

A unit of light measurement

The bore or cavity of a tubular part or organ

The central cavity of a cell
