Imagraph (series) 

Imagraph is an optical apparatus that projects video onto closed eyelids, produced as "a medium that mediates two primordial attitudes: projecting an image and closing the senses. Participants lie on their backs and shut their eyes. Two pieces of LED display board are suspended above their heads from the ceiling, with optical fibers from each pixel extending to the surface of their eyelids. A video prepared in advance is played after being tilted bluish by the spectral compensation for the "blood-red" unique to the participant's own flesh. Here, the lid is also the medium for the very object it is trying to block off. The intended colors, their placements, and their motion can be sent, which realizes animation. However, this in no way implies the triumph of projection over closing the senses.
