 The final product of this study is not just about the texts resulting from the research, but is also about the produced and documented projects in this book. In the end, what is written (and inscribed) is not just the written word, but also the action, the performance in culture through projects and their mark by way of their registration. This is a book written with words and acts.  Eigengrau Laboratory, which is presented as an alternative model of production and exhibition of work, is a methodological cross between contemporary art workshop with aspects of an experimental psychology laboratory. The project is focused on investigating the formal possibilities of the phenomenology of darkness, through experimentation with certainparticular characteristics of its possibilities in the condition of perception, in order to investigate its applicability to exhibition contexts. The Laboratory methodology is based on experimenting in three characteristics of the perception in darkness: the perception of time in vision adjustment, spatial perception, and variations of darkness by crossing it with sound perception. Each of these aspects generated a research period for the development of a hypothesis of work, which was tested in experiments open to the public. This instance allowed the intersubjective dialogue between the proposed and perceived, delving into the inner aspect of the perception of the work. Each of these stages of research was accompanied by a guest artist residency (Benjamin Ossa, Esteban Serrano and Martin Kaulen respectively) which presented projects related to the subjective methodology in the laboratory, allowing conceptual resonance of the investigated ideas and their ability to interact with other art forms beyond the realm of darkness alone.
