Art House is pleased to present In Real Time, an exhibition featuring newly acquired works from the Thoma Foundation’s digital art collection that use real-time software to autonomously generate virtual simulations. Real-time software allows an artwork to deliver a live, constantly evolving animation of infinite duration. This technology is a special characteristic unique to digital art. Artists John Gerrard, Jason Salavon, and Siebren Versteeg have devised programs that generate simulations of the Amazon River, Giorgio Morandi’s still-lifes, and a mathematical improvisation inspired by Piet Mondrian’s modernist paintings.
The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation’s digital art collection spans the global history of computer art of the past fifty years. The collection includes some of the first algorithmic plotter drawings on paper, digital animation, software-driven, generative, and custom coded artworks, interactive works based on real-time gaming platforms, virtual reality, internet-based or networked art, and works that utilize LED and LCD displays.
