FRAMED*: A Platform For New Art Forms

Framed: A display / platform for new art forms

Here’s FRAMED*, a “platform for new art forms” conceptualized by Tokyo based interface designer Yugo Nakamura of tha ltd. Did I hear you ask “Well, isn’t it just a flat screen TV?”. No, it’s more than that. It’s a display acting as a frame for visual art, which you can then just either let animate on its own or interact with using, say, your iPhone. Since there’s a microphone, camera and stereo speakers (+ wireless audio transmitter) built into it as well I’ll just assume there’ll be some highly interactive things created for it, art reacting to its surroundings.

It’s 37.4 x 22 inches big and 1.3 inches deep, containing a 40" Samsung LED Full HD display. Underneath the hood you’ll find an Intel Core i5 based machine running Windows 7 supporting Adobe Flash, Processing, openFrameworks and Cinder. Add WiFi, Bluetooth and a USB connectivity to that and you’ve got something that might just be able to create something more interesting than a regular poster.

FRAMED* is not available for purchase just yet, but follow them on Facebook or Twitter to stay updated.
