This is an installation that utilizes the technique of persistence of vision to animate objects with motion and lights. This digital installation presents motion with digital programming and flickers of light through Light Emitting Diodes. The artwork is a study of how digital information can be delivered to our human visual system through this reverse technique even within a limited projection area. This art piece is meant to remind you of the essence of life and that nothing is trivial in this world. Mega POV is exhibited as one of the installations in the Singaporean sustainable light art festival, I Light Marina Bay in 2012.
Gon KiRin is an art project created by Teddy Lo in collaboration with Ryan Doyle. This art car was designed using metal and LED fixtures to create a dragon onto a deconstructed 1963 Dodge dump truck with a 318 engine. It is an 8-ton beast, measuring approximately 69 feet long and 22.5 feet tall. The dragon is lit with 2,460 Feet of linear RGB LED lighting fixtures and multiple Traxon wall-washer units.
Gon KiRin has two levels of climbing space with seating for more than 20 people in the Dragon’s mouth and on a party couch on its back where riders can move its tail back and forth. A 1,500-pound DJ booth mounted on a Marine Zodiac attack boat sits on the second story. The dragon features a hydraulic neck and a massive flamethrower in its mouth.
Gon KiRin was built in five months by a dedicated 15 person team. It debuted at the 2010 Burning Man as one of the most extraordinary Mutant Vehicles to ever grace the event. It was also featured at the Maker Faire and the New York Halloween Parade in 2011. Continuing its success, GKR returned to Burning Man again in 2012.
