Emergent Visuals

Over the years I have used many light flashing gizmos. Most have done a fine job of bringing about imagery that cannot be obviously explained by the configuration of the light source itself or our own system of vision.

Psychedelic and kaleidoscopic are common terms. Complex, often repetitive patterns. Rotation with changing rate and direction. Colors other than those of the light source. Fractal. Geometric.

The character of the imagery varies with light configuration, flash rates, waveforms, brightness, colors and so on, but emergent imagery, distinct from creative interpretation thereof, seems to fall in a limited range of descriptions.

For raw visual effect I have long found the the native sessions of the Procyon viewed with the standard closed-eye glasses to be the standard for “Wow!”. The Procyon has a standout light control system.

I have recently had the opportunity to use the new Procyon Deep Vision eye wear. These are designed for open eye use but work just fine closed-eye. Similar to the open eye set for the Kasina, but wired for the Procyon three colors to both sides rather than each side.

Open-eye, however, the Deep Vision elicited a “Wow++” even from this jaded, AVS-overdosed user. I think the plain field rather than having left/right variation may be a factor in the unexpectedly impressive light show. There is plenty of brightness for a truly intense experience.

There’s detail and consistency of structure I haven’t seen before.

Seeing something new is one of my favorite things.
