Daniel Hirschmann’s Engine 26
Daniel Hirschmann’s generative painting system, Engine 26, was presented at
the Whitney Museum of Contemporary Art’s Gala event in New York City recently. The piece is the latest in a series of generative painting works Daniel has developed using Processing and Arduino. Daniel used Arduino to control DMX systems for the exhibit. He’s done a number of other DMX projects, many of them Arduino-based.

Engine 26 will be showing at other events in the near future. If it’s near you, check it out, and buy Daniel a beer and ask him for a story or two.
