Ayn Rand Lamp uses an old T.V. interview as source material and tracks Ayn’s eyes as she navigates complex ideas in an interview. Her dramatic eye movements are self-stimulating her brain hemispheres, a technique called bi-lateral stimulation. By panning her eyes back and forth she is unknowingly using this technique to synthesize her brain hemisphere's memory and logic functions connecting complex ideas and accessing enormous amount of information. The lamp bulbs blink back and forth charting Ayn’s shifting gaze and darting eye movements. Simultaneously the blinking lamp is likewise bi-laterally stimulating observers present in the room. Her voice, muted thru the monitor's speakers, is alternatively functioning as the physical mechanism that turns the light bulbs on and off, the bulbs fluctuate with the intensity of her voice's inflections.
