Annie Mitchell is an Installation Artist working in the medium of light. Her two decades in technology and behavioral sciences built a foundational knowledge surrounding what drives us as humans, the environments in which we thrive, and the human connections we need to flourish. She now uses that knowledge to create human-scale light experiences that promote critical thinking and cultivate communities by slowing our collective tempo.
Following guidelines for brainwave entrainment that use specific rhythms, colors, and patterns to gradually decrease the heart-rate, the light sculptures actively seek to move visitors into a meditative state. Annie’s experiences have been described as “intensely relaxing” and “captivating to the point of losing all sense of time passing”.
