Mapping a dream as it navigates through your brain using G+APIs. Exploring metamorphosis through storytelling in the form of a poetic adventure with Chrome Apps and Compute API. Travelling through a playful giant map that explores fantasy and reality on a huge scale using Map API. Creating music through the touch of your finger on a simple piece of wood using Android. These are just a sample of the hundreds of projects we received after inviting the developer community to express themselves creatively ( as part of DevArt ( 

And the winner is … a duo Cyril Diagne & Béatrice Lartigue from France. Cyril and Beatrice’s project, Les métamorphoses de Mr. Kalia, is an interactive poetic adventure exploring the theme of metamorphosis in the human body, inviting the audience to personify Mr. Kalia as he goes through many surrealistic changes [video] [project page on DevArt site]. The piece conveys feelings related to change, evolution and adaptation.

DevArt Top 10 Finalists announced

DevArt is proud to present the Top 10 Finalists in this year's competition. Check out the DevArt gallery to see these inspiring art projects made with code including the shortlist of potential winners.

The judges deliberated over proposal from creative coders all over the world, from Los Angeles and Columbia to Paris, Moscow and Tokyo. They were truly inspired by how the ideas challenged the perception of what art and code can be.

Ten will soon become one - to be announced on or around April 17 - and the lucky winning creative coder will have their DevArt proposal realised as an interactive installation in the Barbican this summer. Watch this space! #DevArt

DevArt: Calling all future interactive artists

With 3 weeks to go, there's still time to enter DevArt. Last month, we opened up a call for the next up-and-coming developer artist, to be featured in the Barbican as part of the Digital Revolution exhibition, and seen by millions of people ( If you’re a future interactive artist, the window to submit a project to DevArt is now halfway through!

So far, we’ve seen some amazing ideas--like Les metamorphoses de Mr. Kalia, a poetic digital adventure which features a character that animates to match a spectator's moves ( Contact^2, which aims to spatially and acoustically map objects of different shapes sizes, with materials that will produce different sounds and possibilities for interaction ( 

In fact, within the first 24 hours of announcing the project, the DevArt template jumped to the 4th most popular repository on GitHub, and within the first week, the template had been forked over 1,000 times.

To get started all you need is an idea, a Github account and a browser to visit to show us what you would create. The contest period closes on March 28. From there, we’ll pick one creator whose work will sit 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 winning creative coder will also receive a budget of £25k and either a Chromebook Pixel or a ticket to Google I/O later this summer.  

If you had the chance to make your mark in today’s art world with technology as your canvas, what would you create? We’d like you to show us!
