EyeLumination pushes the boundaries of how we define projection by making it mobile. Visual artists, Mark Doepker and Rebecca Lipps, have collaborated on building a stylized eye sculpture that houses a small projector. The sculpture was built out of wood and sheet metal, then weatherproofed with One-Shot paint. The sculpture has been engineered to be mounted to the top of a 1969 Volkswagon Beetle with a trailer hub and metal gears. The sculpture also displays two ring lights that surround the iris of the eye. This unconventional approach to making work has transformed our perspective of visual art. The concept of the eye is a vessel for memories, a repository of experiences that enrich our perception of our environment. The projections from the eye are carefully curated to evoke a heightened awareness to it’s surroundings. The vehicle becomes a dynamic platform, illuminates spaces and invites viewers to engage with with the work as an installation, sculpture, and immersive artwork. EyeLumination has opened the door for new possibilities with sculpture and projection technology.
