Why InteRactivE arT?
The Living CanVas The Living Mural is an ongoing piece of collective, generative, user created interactive art that responds to motion, sound, speech, touch, and more. It is a piece of living art with a personality programmed into it. It has wants, desires, and tactics to achieve those. Just like much contemporary art, it's aim is to communicate with viewers on an emotional level in the only way it knows how, through abstraction. Participants move in front of a large canvas screen. Abstract visuals will slowly build and be added to the large mural based on their motion and movement. The longer one stands in front of the screen, the more impact their body will have on the outcome of the art. At the end of each exhibition a canvas pint of it's final visual state is given to the community where it had been exhibited. Each time the Living Canvas is exhibited, the mural will start where it previously left off, continuing the development of this collaborative indefinitely.
