For centuries, circular figures containing symmetrical patterns have been used as a tool for meditation. The mandala, the yantra and symbols for the various chakras, all conform to radial design principles that have been refined throughout the ages. Now those principles have been ruthlessly plundered for the creation of The Psychotron.

The result is a giant, hovering kaleidoscope of liquid light; an ever expanding super-mandala that engulfs its recumbent audience in a fractal universe of soothing spatial repetition.
