Lexus Introduces Van Aubel’s Interactive Solar Sculpture, “8 Minutes and 20 Seconds,” at ICA Miami

Lexus recently unveiled Marjan van Aubel’s mesmerizing solar installation, “8 Minutes and 20 Seconds,” showcased at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami). The stunning piece reimagines the Lexus LF-ZC concept car using vibrant solar cells, engaging viewers with its innovative design.

Named after the duration of sunlight reaching Earth, the installation harnesses Organic Photovoltaics (OPV) to emulate the LF-ZC’s graphic pattern in a full-scale representation. Responsive to motion, the installation creates mesmerizing light displays, synchronized with soothing sounds, offering a sensorial experience akin to the car in motion.

This dynamic artwork, viewable until December 17th, represents Lexus’ continued collaboration with ICA Miami, promoting immersive art experiences. Marjan van Aubel, a sustainability advocate, and renowned solar designer, embodies Lexus’ commitment to innovative design and environmental consciousness. The installation symbolizes an imaginative fusion of energy, technology, and aesthetics.

Accompanying the display, Lexus will host thought-provoking discussions on art and innovation with Whitewall. The talks will feature influential personalities exploring design and humanity’s vision, aligned with van Aubel’s forward-thinking solar design ethos.

ICA Miami, an advocate of experimentation in contemporary art, serves as an invaluable platform for local and emerging artists. Launched in 2014 and relocated in 2017, ICA Miami continues to enrich the cultural landscape, providing open access to exceptional artistic expressions year-round.
