Digital Painting Palette and Brush
This is a physical tool that seamlessly pairs to a digital experience.
The connection demonstrates a symbiotic relationship between traditional painting methods and digital ones, furthermore, proving the importance of traditional making techniques. The artist becomes untethered to their device, free to move and form a deeper connection to their art.
Tools influence the art that is produced from them. They act as frameworks that shift the artists perception of the subject they are seeing, they enable and disable certain approaches, and their very nature aesthetically determines the appearance of a work. An artist holding a pencil will move in a completely different rhythm than an artist working with an ink brush, their minds intertwined with the different languages of each tool. And if they were to attempt to replicate the same image both tools would give the images different appearances. Tools are important to the artist as they provide possibilities. This project set out to explore the possibilities of combining two seemingly separate realms of art through the creation of a new tool.
