Brian Eno’s 77 million paintings

( via boingboing )

The Long Now Foundation has just published news about the North American debut of Brian Eno’s latest project:

Conceived by Brian Eno as “visual music”, his latest artwork, 77 Million Paintings is a constantly evolving sound and imagescape which continues his exploration into light as an artist’s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of “generative software”.He first created 77 Million Paintings to bring art to the increasing number of flat panel TV’s and monitors that often sit darkened and underutilized. Now Eno is also showing large installations of this work, recently at the Venice Bienniale and Milan Triennale, and in Tokyo, London and South Africa. The installation at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will be the North American Premiere of his work.

June 29-July 1 at Yerba Buena in San Francisco. Link to more information on that exhibition, and here is the project website for 77 Million Paintings. Brian Eno narrates an explanation of the project on that Flash-built website. (Thanks, Kevin Kelly!)
