Pedro Mari | http://www.defetto.com/
Pedro Mari, also known as defetto, is a digital artist focused on abstraction, generative systems and visual music.
Dr. Woohoo | http://www.drwoohoo.com/
Dr. Woohoo is a Mountain View based hybrid / generative artist who is programming a path from code on a screen back to the natural world with the help of robots. To create his art he combines the human touch, the creative expressiveness of organic media, the magic of algorithms with behaviors found in natural systems to drive the arm of a Universal Robot UR10. Woohoo’s projects typically flow from the abstract to the practical. To generate his artwork, he cyclically moves between creating his own color and brush applications and plug-ins that attempt to capture his emotions and artistic vision, while emulating natural media.
About DevArt | https://devart.withgoogle.com/
DevArt is a new type of art. It is made with code, by developers that push the possibilities of creativity and technology. They use technology as the canvas and code as the raw materials to create innovative, engaging digital art installations.
DevArt is the opportunity to open their creative process, share their art with the world and be a part of a new movement in art.
Google, with the Barbican in London, will commission a developer to create a new digital art installation alongside some of the world's best interactive artists at the Digital Revolution exhibition: the biggest and most comprehensive exploration of digital creativity ever to be staged in the UK. From there, the exhibition will then go on tour to cities around the world.
