ETIPADO

ETIPADO: Extremely Tall Image Processing And Display Object is a 25-foot saccadic persistence-of-vision LED display with real-time input from a digital camera.

The digital “guts” of the piece live inside a beautiful antique bellows camera, creating an antique aesthetic juxtaposed with high-tech display technology.

The LED strip doesn’t look like much at first, but when you shake your head at it, images from the camera appear seemingly out of nowhere. It’s displaying slices of an image so fast that if you move your eye across it, the image “burns” into your retina.

ETIPADO appeared at Priceless 2018, Burning Man 2018, Burning Man’s Artumnal Gathering 2018, and other corporate and private events. It is available for rental and permanent installation.
