BYOB Dublin

The other day I went along to the BYOB Dublin hosted by the IMOCA ( Irish Museum of Contemporary Art ). Although I had a fancy HD projector sitting in my studio at the time, it was not actually mine to take along to the show so I decided to make a beamer from some bits and pieces lying on the “random stuff” shelves in my studio. I made an analogue projector from some pieces of wood, a 12 volt car headlight, and some adjustable legs that were from an old table tennis set. Once I had the actual projection box made I drilled a grid of holes in the top and placed the projector on the ground and left a glue gun beside it. People could pick up the glue gun and melt the glue into the grid of 48 holes. This created a warm shadow play on the wall.

BYOB DUBLIN is organized by the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art and will be hosted by Moxie Studios, on February 27, from 6pm to 10pm. IMOCA invites artists and designers to present their work at BYOB DUBLIN: the event is open to anyone, so Bring Your Own Beamer [projector] and join the show.

BYOB is a series of one-night-exhibitions curated by different people around the world. The idea is simple: Find a place, invite many artists, ask them to bring their projectors. It is an exploration of the medium of projection. BYOB is an idea by Rafaël Rozendaal. More on:
