Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) invites artists to FEED LASER CAT with their art.

Laser Cat is a giant cat head with lasers for eyes that uses high-powered projectors and lasers to beam crowd-sourced personal art. Laser Cat curates the art submitted and will beam it out of its eyes on February 20 & 21, 2015 in a laser light show complete with DJ spun tunes, smoke machines, and of course, lasers.

Laser Cat has toured the world and has amassed over 15,000 personal art submissions and now it needs artwork from DC-based artists before it visits our nation’s capitol on its next stop. To submit artwork to Laser Cat, visit FEEDLASERCAT.COM and upload a jpeg or gif of your artwork. Laser Cat is always accepting submissions but in order to be considered for the DC event you must submit your work by midnight February 8, 2015.

About Laser Cat Hungry Castle
Laser Cat was commissioned by ADC and conceived by Hungry Castle, this interactive installation debuted at the ADC Festival of Art + Craft in Advertising and Design held in Miami Beach. Hungry Castle is the creative studio featuring Dave Glass and Killian Cooper that specialize in creating public art and fashion, which they call Cool Shit. Working collectively since 2011 their goal has always been to make big, playful things of cultural impact and use design thinking in a way that truly engages people. Influenced by Shepard Fairey’s prolific use of public space with the “Obey Giant” campaign, the artist combine unique, 3-dimensional pieces with large-scale production a la Jeff Koons, but with an added interactive ingredient to create a fully immersive experience between audience and art.
