LG and Royal College of Art host OLED-based exhibition

LG Display has teamed up with the Royal College of Art (RCA), in London, to host an art exhibition based on OLED technology, Luminous.

The initiative started in July, with the launch of a 12-week art and design competition programme named after the OLED technology’s self-emissive nature. Fifty-two students studying information experience design at the RCA utilised various forms of the latest OLED technology, including transparent and curved displays, to produce 15 independent projects and 21 group projects with the purpose of “generating transformative experience of information that challenges or disrupts perspective”.

LG Display engineers provided technical and product support for the RCA students throughout the competition and exhibition.

The entries were whittled to five finalists, whose work will go on display at the Old Street Gallery in London from September 28 to October 4. There are three group projects: ‘Time-flux’, a four-layer transparent OLED with spatial sound installation that creates visual and sonic experience of perceptual time in the form of flux; ‘A Room with a View’, which depicts two OLED display as a window that shifts between a realistic view and a hyper-real view; and ‘Invisible Reinvention’, which uses four curved OLED displays to depict the movements and changes of micro-organisms in microscopic view.

The other two finalists are ‘ALPHA[BETA]’, a speculative system that visually represents post-language communication using transparent technology; and ‘Behaviours’, which features three OLED displays to create a moving image piece detailing the interactivity between charcoal, paper and sound.

At the end of the exhibition, a panel will select three winners. They will travel to South Korea for a tour of LG Display’s facilities.

Danielle Barrios-O’Neil, the RCA’s head of programme, information experience design, said: “It’s been exciting to watch our students push the boundaries of experience design during this competition. LG Display’s technology has made it possible to compose in unique ways with light and sound, and the result has been some startlingly beautiful, perspective-shifting work.”

Jin Min-kyu, head of life display promotion division at LG Display, said: “Collaborating with the world’s most prestigious art and design school, the RCA, represents once again that OLED is the most optimal art canvas. In addition to working with various fields of art based on our next-generation OLED technology, we will continue to promote premium values of OLED through its unsurpassed image quality and various design factors that allow for endless applications.”

Through its collaboration with the RCA, LG Display plans to foster future experts in the media arts space and highlight the values of OLED as an art canvas. The company has collaborated with museums such as the Guggenheim and Smithsonian, brands including Bulgari and world-renowned digital artists such as Refik Anadol.
