Lose Yourself in Space
Upon visiting LAM Budapest, you will encounter a most unique light art installation created by our Co-Founder Viktor Vicsek.
The experimental installation, Space Eater is located in a space that fully surrounds visitors - making them feel like they're part of the artwork.
Unlike most of our art, Space Eater isn't in a fully mapped room but in a capsule-shaped sphere. What's beneath us and what's above us form a single, magical space.
"Creating in a 360º space was a new experiment for me, which I'm really excited to explore further in the future," says Viktor.
The artwork is called Space Eeater because it fills a completely empty space thanks to a generative modeling algorithm called SDF. "Composing on a surface like this is a different ball game," Viktor says. "There isn't a single point of focus, it's all happening in parallel."
Rendering requires six cameras instead of just one. These six images compile a so-called cube map which is then projected back onto the sphere’s surface. It's a truly unique audio-visual experience which you don't want to miss.
Check out Space Eater at LAM Budapest, one of the world’s largest museums dedicated to light art.
