Lynn Augstein's Cobalt Sun, the studio, began in the early 90's in a room in San Rafael, CA with a 12 foot wide, 8 foot high , 20 foot deep space with six theatrical par cans, a light mixing board and a stereo sound system.
Hours were spent experimenting with color combinations of light, observing visual responses, shadow play and its subsequent emotional impact - accompanied by resonant music.
The next evolution of Cobalt Sun Studio was located in Sausalito, CA from 2003 to 2009. With a much larger space to realize her work, it became an experimental lab for the study of perception.
This new environment incorporated multiple video and light projectors. The combinations of light projections and video projections offered extreme flexibility in creating intentional atmospheres and environments, incorporating light and sound.
The atmosphere inside enabled the visitor to experience a visual and sound world outside of the everyday onslaught of sensorial overload and into a more experiential, calming, and receptive space.
Cobalt Sun Studio hosted several music events, gallery showings, workshops and atmospheric meditations, including staging her own installations, "Reverence" and "Logos." For a complete list see her Artist Bio page.
Sound designer and electronic music artist Dwight Loop was the technical support, sound and music designer for Cobalt Sun Studio. Lynn Augstein would like to acknowledge the support of Dwight Loop, Ray Regan, Peter Hall and Juan Wulff and all who have assisted in bringing bring her vision to the world.
