Sandro Kopp is a German artist who has harnessed the artistic potential of VOIP with his Skype paintings. Kopp’s Skype paintings are done during live chats with friends and family members and take upwards of five hours to complete.
Five hours is an extremely long time to be Skyping someone. While these Skype paintings aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, they do show how technology is starting to leave its mark in the art world. I eagerly await the first FaceTime self portraits.
