<nettime> Back Buffer: New Arena Paintings

|||| Back Buffer: New Arena Paintings: Julian Oliver

15 February ? 30 April 2010

Gallery Talk 4pm - Julian Oliver talks about his work and the development of
the open source painting package ioquake3

Opening reception 12 February 6pm
Abstract Expressionist painters have long explored strategies for decoupling
gestural habit and tendency in their work by means of automatic or
chance-based operations. This exhibition by Berlin based artist Julian
Oliver represents a new strategy along this vein, deploying a computer game
as canvas, paint and brush.
The exhibition represents a major iteration of Oliver's game-based painting
system, ioq3aPaint, a project that began in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia as
part of a long career exploring artistic applications for computer game
technology. ioq3aPaint is itself a modification of the source code of
ioquake3, a free-software first person shooter engine used by thousands of
gamers and game developers worldwide.
