Princeton students are invited to meet artist Matt Parker and learn more about his work and his spring Princeton Atelier course on the development of a commercial game about climate change, Rising Waters: A Climate Change Game

Lumarca is a light sculpture that uses projection and string to pull digital art and animation out of the screen and into the real world. Created by Albert Hwang and Matt Parker, Lumarca creates three-dimensional imagery that can be seen in the real world without special glasses or headsets. Viewers’ experience of Lumarca’s content is truly dependent on their individual perspective, and the audience is encouraged to view the piece from many angles to understand the work in multiple different ways.

Lumarca features several different animations that demonstrate the power and flexibility of piece. It is also capable of supporting interactive content. From abstract to representational, from whimsical to dramatic, Lumarca challenges its audience to think of it not just as a work of art, but as a platform.

Lumarca has been an open-source and open-hardware art initiative since its inception, allowing for collaboration and iteration from artists all over the world. Dozens of Lumarcas of different scales, shapes, and resolutions have been developed not only by the artists who initially conceived of the project, but also by others taking their own approach. It is Albert Hwang and Matt Parker’s sincere hope that people continue to develop, improve, and innovate on this concept, demonstrating that Lumarca is not only a unique art experience, but a form of expression open to all.
