Intel Does a Digital Dance

The project kicked off to critical acclaim with a popular private view

Intel Corporation today announces the return of its "Remastered: A Visibly Smart Production from Intel" exhibition at the London Design Festival. The popular event takes place from 22nd September - 25th September in Shoreditch, London. Specially designed for Intel's appearance at London Design Festival, one final classic artwork from the past will be reinterpreted for a contemporary audience as it explores technology's impact on art.

Appearing at the Tent London showcase during London Design Festival, Remastered offers one more opportunity for the public to go back in time as Intel re-tells the stories of some of the most iconic art masterpieces from history using digital technology. The exhibition presents an artist's inspiration in an electrifying creative expose that truly brings to life Intel's Visibly Smart campaign.

The project which kicked off to critical acclaim with a popular private view and three day long exhibition at London's One Marylebone in March, sees Intel once again collaborate with curatorial partner jotta. Joining Intel's homage to art that has defined culture, Central St Martins' conceptual artist Maxence Parache becomes the latest Remastered artist. Reinterpreting Matisse's "Dance", he combines 2nd Generation Intel® CoreTM processor technology with an interactive particle cloud projection for an immersive visual experience. He commented on the piece: "Sourcing inspiration from Matisse's hypnotic painting, Dance II, my aim is to invite the viewer to enter an immersive and dreamlike experience where one can interact with the circle of dancers. I have taken influence from Fauvism and have explored this through physical computing, capturing the wild and intense primeval atmosphere of Dance II".

Matisse's piece completes a dynamic exhibition that considers work from masters including Picasso, Van Gogh, Dali and da Vinci. "Working with some of the best in emerging artistic talent in the UK has been a truly inspirational journey for Intel," said Gail Hanlon, marketing director, Intel UK and Ireland. "The Remastered project has allowed Intel to unlock the creative potential of technology and show that a mouse can be as effective as a paintbrush in design. We hope our technology can be a muse for the next generation of artists and help shape art in the digital age".

Ben James, Creative Director, jotta said: "Remastered helps demonstrate practically and conceptually how technology is being adopted by artists and designers across all disciplines with a broad range of outcomes. We're hugely excited by Remastered at London Design Festival which provides the opportunity to recontextualise and build on the project in one of the world's most innovative design environments, Tent London".

Ben Evans, Festival Director, London Design Festival added: "This year's Festival will demonstrate the power and versatility of design across London; offering a series of quality projects that fulfill London's design credentials".
