Les journées de la culture 2009: P2P, a network painting demo

Event
Friday, September 25, 2009 at 4 pm

It’s a party at 4001 Berri! Japanese-born artist Shie Kasai invites visitors to test out her live, peer-2-peer painting in process at OBORO.

P2P / Peer to Painting (A Simulation) is a device permitting simultaneous reproduction in different locations of identical paintings. In order to do this, the artist draws from network architecture and invites three painters to set themselves up at workstations, giving the impression that each artist is in a different part of the world. Equipped with art supplies, monitors and a camera, the painters look at a live video feed of Shié Kasai painting an image that they simultaneously reproduce.

*From 10 years old
