Brian Eno’s 77 million paintings

July 5, 2007

The North American premiere of 77 Million Paintings was presented by San Francisco’s Long Now Foundation, an art collective established to pursue projects promoting a “slower and better” worldview. The show is one of Eno’s “generative” works. He loads his images and sounds onto a computer, which plays them back randomly as an infinite set of permutations – hence the title.

The audio-visual installation, 77 Million Paintings, has been shown in various forms in Venice, Tokyo and London. The San Francisco installation is the largest yet.

Personally I hope this comes back to the UK as it’s something I am very interested in seeing and developing my systems close to it for performance. It is reassuring to know there is an audience for this type of work, of this size.

There is a video of this if you scroll down into this entry.
