The future of art is here, and it’s digital. A respected and growing body of still and moving works can be found in museums, advertisements, and online, but can digital art come home? After all, an oil painting can be framed, a tapestry can be hung, but how does one display digital art?
New York–based Electric Objects has a solution in EO1, a framed display that can sit on a table or be hung on the wall and is capable of showing more than 10,000 works of digital art.
The EO1 comes with access to Electric Objects’ Art Club—a fund which commits $100,000 annually to commissioning new works of digital art from emerging and established names (think Björk, Sandra Gramm, Skip Hursh, and more). Members can select and display static or moving artwork with a simple swipe of an app.
Electric Objects is offering Remodelista readers free shipping on any order made by June 1, 2016, with the code “eoxremodelista.” Order your EO1 today.
Above: EO1 comes in a black or white frame and has a single power button; no outputs or accessories to contend with. The EO1 uses about the same amount of power as a standard lightbulb, and you can schedule it to go to sleep at night or when you’re not home to save energy.
Above: The portrait-oriented screen has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and displays GIFs, photos, videos, and websites.
Above: The high-definition EO1 screen has a matte finish, meaning detail is easier to see from any angle than on a glossy TV screen and is equally easy to see in daylight and at night. Artwork by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
Above: The EO1 can stand on its own or can be mounted on the wall and it comes with a 30-day risk-free trial; $299.
Above: EO1 can be controlled via an app for iOS and Android or via the Web. Find new artwork via the Electric Objects community, or unearth and display your own digital works, i.e. vacation photos or scanned kids’ drawings.
Above: Through its Art Club, Electric Objects aims “to create one of the largest and most forward-thinking collections of digital art on the planet.” Shown here is the studio of EO partner artist Kitsch Nitsch, who “took a leisurely virtual stroll through the Gardens of Versailles” to create the Opus Paradiso collection for Electric Objects.
