A framed digital canvas takes you into the traditional
art museum world. Small moving agents rotate around the screen and are
told to construct paintings of the old masters. A constant spinning and
whirling of lines on the screen results in a rather slow buildup of recognizable
paintings. But as the small painting agents are bound to their inner algorithm,
they have no memory, and often continue painting over their own drawing.
This leads to a constant construction and destruction of the image. The
canvas shows unfinished fragmented versions of the original paintings
as a result and leaves the question of the ability to transport old art
pieces into the digital domain.
The project has been selected as a Jury Recommended
Work in the art division of the 10th
Japan Media Arts Festival and will be exhibited February 24 to March
4, 2007 at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
