‘Layers of gorgeous, intensely coloured abstract images appear, morph and dissolve into one another, then fade away into something entirely new.’ TIME MAGAZINE

Welcome to Eno’s audio-visual masterpiece, 77 Million Paintings. Conceived as ‘visual music’, it’s an ever-changing image/sound installation.

Harnessing ‘self-generating software’, three hundred of Eno’s hand-drawn images are cut-up and rearranged to form an infinite number of variations. Completely random, entirely original, constantly evolving, the results come to life on luminous screens in a brilliant display of colour, shape and form. To complete the experience, layers of ambient sound interweave to create a complete piece of music.

Shown at the Venice Biennale and the Milan Triennale, as well as in Tokyo, London and San Francisco, 77 Million Paintings will run throughout the whole of Luminous as a free event in The Studio.
