Spontaneous LED wall drawing event

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

I’m sat in front of the LED wall on which you can draw through Colorillo for an hour or so and asked the internet to draw remotely. Fun!

Here are a few photos of pictures that were drawn:

Back on an LED Wall

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Colorillo is back on an LED wall! Again located in Vienna, this time on the Künstlerhaus Wien in the course of the media architecture biennale, a conference and exhibition of media walls and fascades.

Quite a few interesting aspects to it:

  1. the wall goes around a corner
  2. it is embedded into the logo of the conference
  3. the LEDs are aligned more densely this time
  4. a special version of Colorillo is being used that is capable of pixel drawing

The exhibition is worth a look, too. Lots of techniques for enabling colorful light constructions. Also check out the gallery I have attached to this post.

The wall is on display until October 31, 2010 and is turned on at dusk. The exhibition runs daily from 10am to 6pm, on Thursdays until 9pm. Come by and draw! (you can find the URL for drawing right next to the wall)

Thank you to Oliver Schürer, Wolfgang Heigerth and Manfred Wuits (and many others) who were involved in the project!

We drew on the LED Wall!

Thanks for everyone who came by yesterday to play with the LED wall. It was great fun!

I’m working on a short video, but for now here are some photos. Thanks for Georg Semanek and Chris Chiu for taking them!

MSF Beach: LED Wall drawing

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Colorillo is currently powering a collaborative drawing event at the Ärzte ohne Grenzen (Doctors without borders) beach, a temporary beach created for the duration of the AIDS conference 2010 which is being held in Vienna.

At Adria Wien on the Donaukanal in Vienna, you will find an LED wall on which you can draw on using Colorillo. Take your iPhone or Android phone with you, enter the web address you can find there, and start drawing. Of course it also works on Laptops, the iPad, and iPod Touch.

It’s a neat experience to see what you draw appear on a big screen, even more so if you’re drawing with someone else. The resolution of the screen is limited, so sometimes you end up just drawing big blobs of colors, but that’s even more fun. If you happen to be in Vienna, pay a visit. It’s fun!

On Thursday, July 22, 2010, John Megill of the FM4 radio station will be DJ-ing and during that there will be a focus on drawing on the wall. Drawing will start at dusk, around 8:30 pm.

There is also a Facebook event which you can attend. During the Happy hour, a percentage of the price of each drink will be donated to Doctors without borders (MSF).

Thanks to Oliver and Eva for making this possible. Happy drawing!
