Google Creative Lab has brought us digital art installations called “DevArt”, pushing the possibilities of coding as a creative art form.
DevArt will feature four new gallery commissions, an online inspiration hub and a competition for undiscovered creative coders.
This summer they are teaming up with the Barbican in London and their Digital Revolution exhibition to celebrate DevArt in an interactive gallery. Google will also pick an up-and-coming developer artist to feature alongside three of the world’s finest interactive artists who are also creating installations for DevArt: Karsten Schmidt, Zach Lieberman, and the duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet.
The exhibition will also present work by Oscar-winning VFX Supervisor Paul Franklin and his team at Double Negative for Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking film Inception.
“In between creating masterpieces like the Sistine Chapel and “Madonna and Child,” Michelangelo dissected cadavers in the hopes of understanding how the human body worked so he could paint it accurately,” says Steve Vranakis, Executive Creative Director, Google Creative Lab.
“He’s not the only one: there has long been a connection between science and art. And it’s true today more than ever, as modern artists use technology for inspiration, inventing ways to give life to code, letting it spill from the screen and onto the canvas.”
