Videophiles are elated over the possibilities for organic light-emitting diode technology, or OLED. And they have good reason: OLED produces velvety blacks and gorgeous color saturation via a lightweight, paper-thin, bendable medium.
But those same properties are inspiring another group, too: artists. And the things they're doing with OLED are extraordinary.
For example: As part of an initiative called The Art of the Pixel, LG invited students from top art schools to create pieces meant to be displayed on OLED. This creation, called "110 Fathoms," was submitted by the Pratt Institute's Joseph Bui.
Kaneka Corp., which commissioned the work, said in a statement that its goal was "not to illuminate an object or display a source of light, but to create an environment defined by an intermediate condition of light."
