Google DevArt: when art and technology collide

Earlier this year, we announced our upcoming exhibition, Digital Revolution (3 July–14 September), a celebration of the digital world and its impact on the arts which will see the Barbican filled with immersive and interactive works from a range of artists, filmmakers, architects, designers, musicians and game developers. What do they all have in common? They are all pushing the boundaries of their fields using digital media.

In collaboration with Google, we announced an exciting collaboration, DevArt, to commission a developer to create a new digital art installation which would be displayed alongside some of the world’s best interactive artists at Digital Revolution. With less than a week to go before applications close on Friday 28 March, there is still time to submit your work to be in with the chance to see your work at the Barbican in Digital Revolution before the exhibition’s global tour.

How do you create art from code?

As part of the DevArt section in Digital Revolution, Google commissioned three artists, Karsten Schmidt, Zach Lieberman, and duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet to create one, all-new installation. Follow their journey from concept and early sketches to their finished pieces on their Project Pages where they’ll be sharing their creative processes and offer a unique look into their palette of modern technologies including Google APIs, products and services.
