Brushstrokes by Daniel Canogar


Brushstrokes is a generative artwork by Daniel Canogar, featured on the LED screens in the lobby of the new DeKa Bank building on Frankfurt. I had the pleasure of collaborating with the studio on its development.


The artwork is displayed as a continuous animation distributed on the 3 LED screens spanning the width of the lobby. Four webcams strategically placed in the lobby capture the movement of employees and visitors as they walk by the LED screen. Their movements are transformed into linear paint splatters that usually appear in the artwork with bold and bright colors. These linear and bright shapes aid viewers identify the brushstrokes generated by the movement of the public as opposed to those created by the algorithm, which tend to have more irregular forms.
