Machine drawn digital artworks based on nature itself.
Levitate is an artwork visualising and interpreting natural phenomenons and systems, capturing the beauty and complexity of nature.
Capturing unique moments of inspiration.
Visual data captured around the globe forms the inspiration and foundation of each unique artwork.
A system fed by the inspiration the artist feels, explores and captures around the globe.
Levitate is a symbiosis between computer and human. A collaboration outsourcing the craft of drawing using dedicated, human made tools.
Creating art is based on human thoughts and emotions, processing and interpreting a unique point of view. The mechanical part of putting paint to a canvas is questioned when computers become a natural part of the process.
The artist sees patterns and colors in nature. Anything is possible like rain or the wind in trees.
The artist captures the moment in slow-motion with a dedicated tool (iOS app)
The data is added to an archive of moments
The computer program (macOS) analyses the data and draws pictures in high definition
The artists selects outstanding results
The pictures drawn by the computer are all unique and happen in the moment. The drawings (28 mega pixel resolution) can be exhibited and purchased as prints up to 2x1m.
Depending on the venue an interactive version based on a video wall or projectors and a spatial multi-touch installation is possible too.
