March 12th, 2012

Evan Roth has been living and making new work in Detroit for the last month, gearing up for a solo exhibition that opens this Wednesday at Eastern Michigan University: Welcome to Detroit. His new series of artworks is called: Propulsion Paintings. Loving it!

As part of his residency at Eastern Michigan University, he’s teaching a course called Art and Hacking where he had the students create their own Propulsion Paintings as their first project. Below are the results:

Interactive Robotic Painting Machine

August 25th, 2011

Interactive Robotic Painting Machine” is an installation by Benjamin Grosser. I guess won’t have to explain to you what it is. The machine uses artificial intelligence to paint its own body of work and to make its own decisions. While doing so, it listens to its environment and considers what it hears as input into the painting process.

Milena is a negative painting by Rafał Bujnowski. He used a reversed color palette to paint his daughter. The viewer is supposed to develop the image with their imagination or by taking a photo and reversing it into negative.

In 1977/1978 Anton Perich built a painting machine, an early giant paintjet printer. Since then he’s been making these amazing Machine Painting. I really like them. You can see one of his machines in action in the video below.

Car Prints

October 7th, 2010

Sarah Illenberger, a Berlin based creative, covered some cars with fingerpaint and then made huge prints with them. To be honest, it looks very familiar, but nice none the less. Apparently she was inspired by an idea by the artstudent Stacey Chapman, unfortenately I couldn’t find any information on her.
If you speak some German you read an article about it here.

A dripping and evaporating bird by Maurizio Bongiovanni. It does remind me a little of the pixel stretch effect, remember that stuff?

DEEPHORIZON – Digital Oil Paintings

May 6th, 2010

DEEPHORIZON is the latest project by UBERMORGEN.COM. I guess we’ve all heard about the current environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. UBERMORGEN.COM has quite a different view on the situation: “An oil painting on a 80.000 square miles ocean canvas with 32 million liters of oil – a unique piece of art.”
These Digital Oil Paintings are actually photos of the disaster but they’ve manipulated them. They’ve used a compressor and video editing-software to liquify, transform and destort the photos to achieve this oil painting-like effect. Brilliant!
