About ‘The Effection Experience’
Effection invites you to embark on a transformative expedition, rediscovering yourself and your environment through a fusion of sensory stimuli. This unique sensory experience acts as a mirror to your inner landscape, gently guiding you from your current state towards a harmonious state of coherence. In this journey, heart rhythms, breathing patterns, and emotions synchronize through meditative cycles of light and sound.
Guided by heart rate sensors, ‘The Effection Experience’ dynamically responds to the rhythms of your heart, transforming them into cascading gradients of light and enveloping sound. This immersive biofeedback encounter invites you to explore the intricate connections between your heart, breath, and emotions. Incorporating principles of colour psychology and emotional mapping, Effection serves as a lasting reminder of our profound interconnectedness, guiding us on a path toward enhanced well-being and self-discovery.
Join us in this shared realm of reflective presence, where technology seamlessly merges with introspection, and the convergence of heartbeats, breathing rhythms, light, and sound whisper a tale of rediscovery.
Raised in a culture that extolled the virtues of meditation and inner mindfulness, our artist, Hansika Mangwani, discovered the profound science behind this enigmatic experience during her time in Australia. Her journey has led to a revelation: the intricate bond linking the heart, breath, and emotion defines our individuality. States of ecstasy, joy, and wonder synchronize heart rhythms with inhalation and exhalation patterns, bringing the body to a state of harmony. Conversely, negative emotions disrupt this symphony, inducing discord within the rhythmic patterns.
Through Effection, Hansika invites you to tangibly encounter this interconnectedness, fostering a deep communion with your inner self and the nurturing world around you.

Her creative inspiration draws from her cultural heritage and upbringing, seamlessly melding with scientific curiosity.
