The Dreamachine

The Dreamachine (also known as Dream Machine) is a stroboscopic device designed by artist Brion Gysin in 1959, when he showcased the original one in the Louvre, Paris.

It’s an object to be “viewed” with your eyes closed – the light flickering through it’s cutout shapes is said to stimulate your brain.
