The Art of Code
On the 1st of March we launched a season which celebrates the ‘Art of Code’.

Partnered with OpenProcessing we invited artists using Processing to create artworks for the Bus-Tops screens. All of the entries can be seen as original sketches at the competition page and you can also see all the entries on Bus-Tops.
Artists using code to create their work are at the edge of a new era of visual arts and we hope they inspire you as much as they do us. The season for Generative art runs throughout March so remember you can still get involved by uploading here.
In March we welcome Carla Arocha + Stéphane Schraenen with a new work –
‘All The Umbrellas In London Can’t Stop The Pain’
Arocha+Schraenen will be exhibiting a series of works situated on Bus-Tops near World War II V-2 missile bombing sites.
Entitled ‘All the Umbrellas in London Can’t Stop the Pain’, in reference to a song by the band Magnetic Fields, the works to be exhibited on Bus-Tops throughout London feature abstracted animations that suggest raindrops, video game’explosions’ and reference the Olympic rings.
Keep up with their work as it goes live by following them at Bus-Tops.
