Jason Loam - Kaleidoscopes

 

Projection Kaleidoscope

Through the years, artists have dabbled with the idea of making projection kaleidoscopes. That is, a scope that would project onto a wall. The inherent problem associated with this undertaking is that it is not 'user friendly' for home viewing. Essentially, you need a motor to rotate the object chamber, light for illumination and a fan for cooling. The electrical components become loud. That doesn't mention scale. Historically, all the prototypes of projection kaleidoscopes that had been made were large and loud and the image was lousy, to say the least.

Jason Loam broke through the 'projection barrier' with his development of the Projection Kaleidoscope. A black acrylic housing sits on a frosted acrylic stand. The integrity of the three-mirror equilateral system has been preserved and is wonderful! View the Projection Kaleidoscope by night, as the illusion is best in a dimly lit or darkened room Set the Projection Kaleidoscope about 5 feet from a wall, ceiling or other surface you want to have the illusion projected onto. Turn on the Projection Kaleidoscope and enjoy! What a wonderful way to create a mood or a conversation piece while entertaining.

There are two switches on the front of the kaleidoscope. One turns on the light, the other rotates the hand painted wheels. An optical lens is preset for a 5-foot focal length for perfect clarity. However, if the kaleidoscope is further away, the projected image becomes larger and slightly diffused and still looks pretty spectacular. It takes about 15 minutes for one full revolution of the hand painted wheels. Battery powered.

The Projection Kaleidoscope measures 5.75 inches wide by 10 inches deep by 9 inches tall sitting on the base. $1000.
