If you still listen to vinyl, you need to know of the Brian Eno color-changing turntable. A functional piece of art limited to 50 editions, it’s available through a London gallery.
Brian Eno Color-Changing Turntable
Paul Stolper Gallery is a contemporary London art gallery and a leading publisher of contemporary artist editions. English musician, composer, record producer and visual artist Brian Eno has created a limited edition turntable with color-changing LED lights available only through the gallery.
Brian Eno is known as one of the principal innovators of ambient music and generative painting. He joined Brian Ferry’s Roxy Music in 1971 and in 1973 left to record a number of solo albums, coining the term ‘ambient music’ to describe his work.
Brian Eno’s ‘Turntable’ seamlessly phases through combinations of seductive self-generated ‘colourscapes’ using a series of interwoven LED lights. By extending temporal boundaries with a work that seemingly has no beginning or end, no finality, Eno “encourages people to stay in one place for a while”.
Made of acrylic with LED lights, each edition of 50 is hand signed and numbered engraved on the turntable’s back right-hand side.
The 420mm x 420mm x 76mm case sits upon 16mm feet with an 18mm clear platter. Total height from top of platter to base 110mm
“If a painting is hanging on a wall we don’t feel that we’re missing something by not paying attention to it. Yet with music and video, we still have the expectation of some kind of drama. My music and videos do change, but they change slowly. And they change in such a way that it doesn’t matter if you miss a bit”. – Brian Eno
Eno’s current body of work includes light boxes, etchings and lenticular printing as well as sculptural and sound works. His light boxes seamlessly phase through infinite combinations of seductive self-generated ‘colourscapes’ using a series of interwoven LED lights. See more of his work here.
