A new gallery is showcasing interactive works based on some of the best known pieces of fine art from the last 1,200 years. Curated by art and design community Jotta, and put on by Intel to promote its Visual Life campaign, Remastered runs for three days from today at a gallery in Marylebone, London.
Intel says that the exhibition "unlocks the creative potential of technology and underlines how visual masterpieces can be created with simply a mouse as a brushstroke or a screen as a canvas."
Works on show include artist Eric Schockmel's animated take (still above) on JMW Turner’s painting Rain, Steam and Speed – The Great Western Railway (below).
Food architect duo Bompas & Parr will use crowdsourcing to add a social finish to its food art re-creation of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, which features notable 'last meals' from history, including a first-class menu from the Titanic and last meal of death row inmate Robert Buell.

Ben James, jotta’s head of creative, said: “The broad range of work and outcomes exhibited within Remastered help demonstrate how technology is being adopted practically and conceptually by artists and designers across all disciplines. The intersection of technology and art has gone far beyond its creation on a computer to a symbiotic relationship -- one where new technology offers new opportunities to the artist or designer who, in return, provides ever-evolving experiences and contexts to our relationship with technology.”
