Examples in Media/Art

By far, Turrell is the most well known artist to use the Ganzfeld effect. His series of works, shown both in the cover photo and attached images, provide a colorful version of the effect. 

He, fellow artist Robert Irwin, and psychologist Ed Wortz did considerable research into manipulating this effect for art. (x)

Irwin also experimented with the Ganzfeld effect independently.

Turrell uses color and light dramatically, in an intensely immersive way, while Irwin prefers a subtler approach. Turrell has also pushed the boundaries further with his "Perceptual Cell" installations, which have often been regarded as deeply personal, bordering on uncomfortable, experiences. See this description of the experience to get an idea of what people mean.
