Lateral Inhibition: In neurobiology, Lateral Inhibition is the capacity of an excited neuron to reduce the activity of its neighbors. Lateral inhibition sharpens the spatial profile of excitation in response to a localized stimulus. Lateral Inhibition is inspired by György Kepes' light art. He was a strong proponent for unifying art, science and technology with respect to visual patterns. His interest in the visual representation of motion and the technological potential to depict the visible world,in particular the effects of light fascinate us. The light art in Kepes' work is a good example to show how the optoelectronic revolution has made the light a real and unique artistic medium in recent decades. His artistic, visionary thinking spanned and at times dominated much of the spirit and intellect of the integrative arts for over two-thirds of the 20th century. His suggestions and projections remain alive and forceful at the onset of the new millennium. Our inspiration comes from the idea to represent that intersection of art, science and technology in a place that mediates contemporary visual art like Mucsarnok. Read Less
