Interactive: Exploring Abstract Artist Connections

Inventing Abstraction 2

Today it’s easy to take for granted the massive shift abstract art had on the art world and society as a whole. It’s easy to forget that at one time “realism” was par for the course and even the expressionists made sure you could identify the objects in their works. Then, just a little over 100 years ago, abstract artists appeared on the scene forever changing what could be considered art. This interactive visualization by New York’s Museum of Modern Art explores the similarly forgotten fact that many of the first abstract artists where highly connected to one another. [Read more...]

Artwork Jumps to Life on the iPhone, in Real-Time

Monday 10.08.2012 , Posted by

What if each time you looked at a static picture, painting or even object, it popped into bright and detailed motion, telling a new and unique story. No, I’m not talking about an LSD trip, but the new ARART app which was recently displayed at Sapporo’s ATTIC space. Using iPhones and iPads to detect pre-programed images, viewers were treated to a new system which detects imagery and then overlays the image with an animated image in its place. The exhibition used examples of van Gogh’s Sunflowers, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, as well as CDs, LPs and modern artworks. [Read more...]

IRIS: Interactive, Expanding Dots Mimic Your Movements

Tuesday 09.25.2012 , Posted by

The world has exploded with hacks of the Microsoft Kinect and its ability to track the body’s movements, but the majority of examples use a conventional screen. The aptly titled IRIS breaks this trend, using a very unique and beautiful matrix of clear LCD screens. Each monochromatic unit has the ability to display a phased, opening and closing, black “iris” of either solid or concentric circles. Linking this to the Kinect, you get a screen which can roughly emulate the shape of peoples bodies using a artful halftone like pattern. [Read more...]
