SWEATSHOPPE: PAINTING WITH VIDEO

I saw this on PSFK. And it’s amazing.

Two video artists (Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw) make up this multimedia performance group called Sweatshoppe, and developed a way to paint with video. Yes “Paint”. They attached LED’s to paint rollers, which are tracked by the video control software. Drawing commands are generated, and the strokes of the roller are textured with video projection.

Take a look to the videos:

The Landing.

In an effort to establish new platforms for public art and performance, the
multimedia duo SWEATSHOPPE has developed a new interactive technology that enables
them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture. Dubbed
“video painting”, this technology allows them to essentially “paint” video onto any
surface. Shooting in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, the duo spent weeks
documenting their work in urban settings to create “The Landing” the first in a
series of episodes that showcases their work as artist, technologist and performers.
This video shows 4 full uncut extra clips form the landing.
