Lucida is a touring exhibition first shown at Tintype who represents the artist and then at the Centre For Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, earlier this year; the work is now exhibiting at Asia House, London. Lucida III has been commissioned by the Science Gallery Dublin where it was exhibited as part of Seeing (24 June – 22 October 2016) and is currently showing at Frost Science Museum, Miami, US (until 20 Oct 2017).

Chan’s Lucida project exposes the curious and complex relationship between the human eye, the brain and vision.

Lucida II & III are fully interactive works and visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the project through the use of eye-tracking technology. The moving image installations invite the audience to participate and make the surprising discovery that their gaze can change what they see and hear. Lucida II & III will reveal to the audience their own rapid eye movements, something that we are normally unaware of, as well as how we see with our central and peripheral vision.
