Kinetic Stories - Animated Sculptures and Architectural Elements
Throughout his career, Martin Eichinger has explored kinetics by turning science theory into interactive experiences. He incorporates space, time and movement, and expands his sculptural oeuvre to include structures driven by water, wind, power and imagination.
The goal of his kinetic work matches his figurative sculptures - to involve viewers in the space and evoke reaction, inspiration, reflection and conversation.

Eichinger and his creative team designed animated architectural elements into The Geode’s exterior facade in Portland, Oregon.
Two 35' acrylic towers display 30,000 LEDs to create a continuously changing series of abstract images.
Crystalis was the centerpiece installation at the 2019 Portland Winter Light Festival. The piece displayed a performance by Jillian St. Germain of BodyVox depicting a figure emerging as a butterfly.
The images were shot with three video cameras and projected into a series of translucent panels to create a captivating illusion.
