Andy Warhol Pop Art Style
A Warholian project is defined to launch tonight, exactly at nighttime, to commemorate the iconic Pop artist's 85th birthday celebration.
The live steaming web site EarthCam as well as the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh have teamed as much as provide "Figment, " a collaborative multimedia task which will feature a real time feed of Warhol's grave with noise (though we wonder exactly what stated "sounds" will contain), in addition to a real time streaming webcam (also with sound) of St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church, in which Warhol ended up being baptized.
And that is not totally all: The grave project calls for "one-of-a-kind artwork with Warholian image effects and color palettes built-into gravesite snapshots, " relating to a statement. To do this, EarthCam created a filter across HD megapixel gravesite photos that draws from scores of one-of-a-kind color combinations and you will be updated (fittingly) every quarter-hour.
The project can be interactive. "people can affect this unique pop art knowledge by giving flowers to Andy and watching real time as they're brought to their gravesite, " EarthCam founder and CEO Brian Cury informed ARTINFO. And, definitely, if folks pose while watching webcam, they will be the main art.
Cury thinks Warhol could have approved for the stunt. "we met Andy at a supper and we also talked about the tradition of popularity and television, " he explained. "I believe he'd have been intrigued with utilizing a live cam to make art."
Additionally involved in the task is Warhol Museum manager Eric Shiner, who will join Cury tomorrow at 3 pm in the gravesite, along with the artist's nephew, Donald Warhola, dad Tom Schaefer from aforementioned chapel, and local musician Madelyn Roehrig, who has been shooting men and women at Warhol's gravesite since 2009 and, to date, features taped a huge selection of followers spending tribute to the artist there in an array of methods, which range from severe and enthusiastic to lighthearted and whimsical.
Via e-mail, Shiner explained why the effort made good sense: "Through innovative EarthCam technology, itself impressed by Warhol through their conversations on voyeurism with Cury, we are now able to enjoy virtual site visitors from around the world to see Andy in his last resting destination."
