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 (http://goo.gl/8V93OE
). 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 (http://goo.gl/oETbF3)...or
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 (http://goo.gl/ppY9CI
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 g.co/devart
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!
