WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif., May 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Artist David Van Eyssen will unveil tomorrow his latest sound and motion triptych Transformations in a multiscreen experience on LG OLED Gallery TVs at the Kimpton La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood.
Designed to be displayed using three vertical 77-inch 4K LG OLED panels, Transformations embraces a range of imaging technologies including LiDAR, point-cloud, photogrammetry, 3D animation, video and photography in a lyrical exploration of machine and human consciousness. The multi-media experience will be unveiled Saturday evening at 6:00 p.m. PT as a permanent installation in the La Peer Hotel presented by LG Electronics USA.
“As an extension of my interest in time and memory, I began to think about the data portrait we create by interacting electronically with ourselves and others,” said Van Eyssen. “The neural connections we create, and the images we imprint in the systems that surround us.”
Regarding the use of LG’s celebrated LG OLED Gallery Series TVs for the project, Van Eyssen explains, “For clarity, color tone, and black density, LG’s OLED TVs are the ideal display medium for this piece which depends on fine gradations in color and contrast to render volumetric objects and figures. The form factor and design of the screens contribute to the sculptural quality of the installation, which is an essential part of the experience.”
