ART. RESEARCH. MEDITATION. INNOVATION. EDUCATION.
WHO WE ARE
The Solar Species vision is dedicated to helping humans thrive in our transition from a terrestrial species to a solar species. We are helping solve the question: What tools/innovations/trainings do we humans need to live in deep space faraway from planet Earth? As a team of artists, futurists, meditators, neuroscientists, doctors, scientists and technologists, we are dedicated to developing techniques and materials to help strengthen the neurological system and physiological capabilities as we evolve as a species.
WHAT WE DO
We blend science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) to bring creative explorations from the traditional art world into real life through interactive art and experiential installations. Currently, this means using 3D printed materials, lenses, lights, embedded sensors and other types of software and hardware to amplify the body’s innate comfort and soothing mechanisms when placed in extreme environments. We use these tools and techniques to train humans how to cope when disconnected from the earth’s natural bio rhythms, so that we might be better equipped for our future in outer space. Also useful in today’s world, this same technology could be used to nurture babies in incubators, dwellers in confined living spaces, and those under the care of hospice- anyone who exists in an isolated environment in need of comfort in order to survive.
It is our goal to blend ancient traditions and technologies with the most innovative scientific discoveries and materials in order to facilitate the physiological adaptation of the first space emigrants.
We are inspired by the ancient healing techniques of Ayurvedic Medicine (Jyotish), Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture), and Anthroposophic Medicine (the spiritual science of Rudolf Steiner) and modern technologies such as opensource EEG, HRV sensors, the crescograph, plus ongoing practices and research using techniques from meditation adepts Yogananda and Samuel Sagan.
