I'm a Fine Art student at University of Reading (UK) and this week mon-friday evenings am projecting my realtime evolutionary sculpture 'Eso' onto a 10m^2 wall which overlooks a public footpath on campus. The sculpture moves changes and evolves in realtime using blender, python and numpy for fast array handling. Thought you might be interested, more details at my website (link under the picture on the left on front page or via text link bottom right of homepage. This work is part of my area of research: taking unusual and engaging art into the public environment. If you require any more details or better quality pictures please let me know.

Thanks, Ed Quick.

  1. Is there any link where we could access to a video of the artwork in motion?

    (or just a quick youtube link when you have time)

    Hope it will inspire many other artists who see your art.

    URS ‘Lego' Building < Is there any links with the blocks in the sculpture? :) (LEGO stands for Live Evolutionary Growing Organism ?)

  2. Thanks for the comment aws357. Here's a youtube link to a hastily uploaded copy of one of my videos taken on site during development. For some reason that night all the outside lights were off but the camera didn't appreciate the complete darness so it's not the best quality footage despite some tweaking:

    Wow! Looks awesome. Liked the colors! I noticed that you are using real time stencil shadows... What is your computer specs?

    And also: why did you choose only orthogonal forms?
