STATEMENT: At various local WNY locations we gather images for collaboration and future electronic blending and manipulations. For each image, we combine artistic intent with Reiki healing energy, fusing positive energy into the work. We then add the element of light with RGB LED strip lights. When you meet one in person you are immediately aware of the Energy of the Unit, hence the name Illuminated Energy Unit (IEU). With the remote control, you can change the color, the brightness, or choose between four program loops. There have been many scientific studies that prove different colors have an effect on us. Your mood can be changed with the right color combination. Cherry Spiral was made from a photograph of cherry trees.
