Origin of the Curve is an unique sculpture inspired by the curved design of the new Samsung Curved UHD TV. The monumental sculpture is composed of 8 overlapping arcs that include 26 Samsung 65" Curved TVs which shows the interactive and generative virtual-reality artwork “Origin of the Curve”. “Origin of the Curve” is composed of vivid and colorful patterns that continuously change shape and evolve in a generative music by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi. “Origin of the Curve” is a continuation of the work of the artists like Nam June Paik, Bill Viola or Gary Hill, video art pioneers who have created installations and sculptures with screens. This work is at the intersection of painting, sculpture, music and digital art, merges of the most innovative technology and the contemporary art of the 21st century.
