I came across Bruno Levy at the 2012 Vimeo Awards and instantly made a new friend. Creative, artistic and a very likable guy. We talk about his award winning video “Sweatshoppe” how he and his creative partner (Blake Shaw) came up with the idea and the process behind it. We also cut up a bit about the future of video and what it means living as an artist. Fun chat.
New media art duo SWEATSHOPPE aka Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy are back from Europe with a new video that showcases their live interactive video wheatpaste in Berlin, Bristol, Belgrade, London and Paris. Over a two week period the duo pasted their videos in over 10 spots including the Berlin Wall, Les Invalides, Cordy House and even constructed a 5 meter telescopic electronic paint roller to create a two-story tall video painting in Bristol.
Video painting is a technology the duo developed that allows them to create the illusion that they are painting videos onto walls with electronic paint rollers they built. It works through custom software that they wrote that tracks the position of the paint rollers and projects video wherever they choose to paint, allowing them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture and create live video collages in real time.
