Google DevArt Exhibit: Where Art and Code Come Together

By Todd R. Weiss  |  Posted 2014-07-18

Earlier this year, Google joined with London's Barbican cultural center to hold a DevArt competition that asked artists to integrate computer code with their imaginations to inspire new kinds of creativity. Hundreds of entries were received and a winner was named in April, as reported earlier by eWEEK. Now, the works from hundreds of entrants are on display interactively at the Barbican through Sept. 14, featuring innovative, colorful and intriguing concepts using light, color, form and images that tease the imagination and eyes of viewers. In this slide show, eWEEK has put together a sampling of this year's DevArt entries, which explore and push the boundaries of traditional museum "art" and show the interesting cross-overs between technology and art. The Google/Barbican DevArt competition was unveiled as a way to expand a rising group of interactive artists who are creating amazing projects and work using code. After the exhibit closes, it will go on tour to cities around the world. Look at these works and see the possibilities that their artists imagined as they created them.
