A layer starts as a physical hand-painted artwork. The physical painting is digitally scanned and converted into a virtual layer in the gallery software. A virtual layer can then be projected onto a canvas to be used as a template for painting additional layers, so that the layers are graphically linked to each other. This forms a palimpsest of artwork that can be procedurally displayed in a mesmerizing audio/visual performance.
Layers 0 and 1 were painted by artist Sean P. Lambert onto the canvas at Porch Logic’s lounge, and are currently being blended together with the first revision of the gallery software: PL1.
