SWEATSHOPPE – Roller Brush Video

by Red Cell

Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw are the Brooklyn duo that make up the multimedia performance group named SWEATSHOPPE. Together they have created what appears to be video magic by using the programming language MAX/MSP to employ L.E.D. roller “brushes” that paint video onto walls and objects wherever they touch. On film this can look like aftereffects and post production, but in person it looks like a seasoned conjurer’s best trick. This is currently being shown at the Art | Basel fair in Miami, FL. Spectators are allowed to “paint” on walls revealing either a woman or a man sucking on a popsicle in extremely vibrant colors (see pics below).

Levy already has a history in working with video having collaborated with musical artists like RZA of the Wu Tang Clan, the Brand New Heavies and The Walkmen as well as working in design with magazines like Wired and XLR8R. He is also considered a pioneer in video scratching techniques, so it is no surprise that his newest venture is also video based. A few of the places he has exhibited are the Guggenheim, SFMOMA, the Rubin Museum of Himalayan Arts and the Jumbotron in Times Square.
