Marcos Lutyens

Born in 1964 in London, UK. Lives and works in Los Angeles, USA.

Marcos Lutyens' practice has centered on the use of hypnosis to engage the visitor's embodied experience of art, while also involving various parallel approaches to explore group and individual consciousness. Exhibitions of infinite scale and nature have been installed in the minds of visitors. His investigations have included research with social group such as the third-gender Muxhe, Raeilians, synaesthetes, border migrants, space engineers and mental architects to explore how unconscious mind-sets shift across cultures and backgrounds.
Building on his investigations into consciousness and social dynamics, Lutyens has developed projects that involve our external surroundings. Works include interactions with pedestrian flows, social media dialogue, air quality levels, animal and biological intercommunication and other dynamics that are generally invisible to the casual observer, and yet as important as the subjective processes of the inner mind.
