Conceived by Brian Eno as “visual music”, his latest artwork, 77 Million Paintings is a constantly evolving sound and imagescape which continues his exploration into light as an artist’s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of “generative software”. [ Think Flash or Processing or Max with a lot of math thrown in… ]

77 Million Paintings

The installation is mesmerizing; comprised of flat panel monitors, running multiple instances of 77 Million Paintings, the kaleidoscopic displays and slow, rhythmic evolution of the artwork create a singular experience for the viewer. He first created 77 Million Paintings to bring art to the increasing number of flat panel TV’s and monitors that often sit darkened and underutilized. The installation at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will be the North American Premiere of his work.

One exhibit now, Saturday, June 30th from 8pm till 2 am and Sunday, July 1st, from 7pm till midnight at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
