Intel Corporation opens the doors to a unique exhibition in London that explores the relationship between art and technology. Bringing to life the inspiration behind Intel’s Visual Life campaign, ‘Remastered: A Visibly Smart Production from Intel’ brings the art and technology world together in a fusion of classic art and boundary-pushing technology.
In collaboration with its curatorial and creative partner jotta, Intel re-tells the stories of some of the most famous pieces of art from history, using technology to re-interpret their meaning for a contemporary audience. The exhibition unlocks the creative potential of technology and underlines how visual masterpieces can be created with simply a mouse as a brushstroke or a screen as a canvas. It is open to the public at London’s One Marylebone from March 10—March 13.
Showcasing some of today’s leading creative talent, the exhibition features artworks made possible through the use of technology. Artist Eric Schockmel uses 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor technology to create a stunning visual animation of J.M.W. Turner’s painting, ‘Rain, Steam and Speed—The Great Western Railway’; Food architect duo Bompas & Parr will use crowd sourcing to add a social finish to its food art re-creation of Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper,’ which features famous ‘last meals’ from history, including a first-class menu from the Titanic and last meal of death row inmate Robert Buell.
