Ben Phelan’s Dream Machine Device

Brooklyn-based artist Ben Phelan recently had a few pieces at Nudashank Gallery in Baltimore. One of them, the Dream Machine Device, consists of acrylic orbs fitted with strobing LED lights, making for a truly intense, visceral experience.

At the opening of the show during the Transmodern Festival, the piece induced seizures in a reveler who had been partying with various substances, and later in the evening, it caused a resident cat to vomit and convulse. Phelan was rumored to be appalled when he heard the news. He intends his strobe devices to be therapeutic.
