John Baldessari has created a free iPad or iPhone app for the “Off the Wall: Thirty Performative Actions” exhibition at the Whitney. It is both about art, and encourages you to make art, bringing a painting from the Dutch Golden Age Still Life to life. Using tech to give an old painting new life is somewhat more addictive that I might have expected, here are the results:
The app can be accessed on line at in-still-life.com (where you will also find the symbolism behind the items you are moving about) or downloaded for your iPad or iPhonehere. Once you have completed your masterpiece you can share, tweet, email it to your friends or compare the results from others at In Still Life Photos.
“Still lifes are about the fleeting things in life. Each object has a symbolic meaning attached to it.”John Baldessari
