Wilfred, an artist who experimented with a form of visual music he called "Lumia" developed an entire aesthetic system that could either be performed live, or set-up as an automatic display. His instrument, the Clavilux, was subject of several patents, collected along with images from Opus 161. Together these essays, the patents, and selected images provide a clear description of Lumia, what Wilfred described as "the eighth art." Of particular interest in this collection are Wilfred's comments and observations about the difference between his lumia and film.
