Project: Digital Art Frame
By: Cameron Weibe, 29
1 x Pi
1 x wooden picture frame
1 x slim LCD display
Ripping an existing painting out of a favourite fine-art frame and mounting a high-definition LCD screen inside it instead (using duct tape to secure the screen to the frame) was the genius, but simple, idea of Canadian artist and graphic designer Weibe.
Programming a basic routine into his Pi computer hidden behind it, Weibe managed to create code that continuously pulled in the 50 most popular images each day from art website deviantART, providing his visitors a smorgasbord of rotating works from this huge collective of online artists.
