New Art Installation to Send Message of Love to the Universe

Press release from: Stefan Verstappen

For over 75 years astronomers have been sending messages via radio transmissions into space in an attempt to contact advanced alien civilizations, but so far no reply.

Many messages have been sent, from series of prime numbers to Beatles songs, but maybe not the most important message – love.

Artist/inventor, Stefan Verstappen has designed a public art installation that will literally beam love into space.

Greetings From PLANET EARTH is an interactive light, sound and mind installation to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Voyager Spacecraft with a spectacular twist, your brain interacts with the installation and the universe!

How it Works

Housed inside a geodesic dome are 8 ‘Mind Pods’ arranged in a circle around a central processing hub. Each pod is equipped with a neurofeedback headset that will record each person’s unique brainwave pattern and, using a computer graphics interface, project those patterns onto the inside of the dome in a 3D immersive experience.

Each person is encouraged to remember someone they love, like a spouse, family member, friend, or pet. Imagine 8 people from different walks of life, whose brains are linked together through a central computer, sharing thoughts of love, and having those thoughts projected onto the interior of the dome.

A digital recording of the brainwave frequencies is then up-loaded to a 500 watt 60 foot dish antenna and transmitted directly into the center of our milky way galaxy!

But There’s More…

What if you could send your personal message into space, and include a return address?

Before leaving the exhibit, each attendee can record a 30 second audio message to include in the transmission with their personal brain scan. There are dozens of scientific studies that prove that electro magnetic waves can directly influence and communicate with our brains.

It is theoretically possible, if you sent a message into space paired with your unique brain frequency, advanced civilizations receiving your message could reply by transmitting a signal tuned to your specific frequency. Aliens could, theoretically, talk directly to your consciousness.

Greetings From Planet Earth will tour art festivals and fairs across the US in the summer of 2018.

Stefan believes that art is not just something one does, but a way of life, and that one’s life should be seen as a work of art.

Intrigued by the sense of synesthesia, Stefan has been creating public art installations that combine multiple mediums of sound, light, and frequency.
