StyleClash – The Painting Machine Construction Kit is a unique take on the drawing game for iPad2 developed by game designer and visual artist Jochem van der Spek (website). StyleClash was originally developed as part of the video game research project A Split Second– an initiative of Submarine Channel and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
Styleclash is fun to play and fun to watch.
With StyleClash you can create beautiful abstract paintings using a virtual 3-D painting machine. You can influence the visual expressive output of your machine by adding brushes, crayons, wheels and a motor to it. Then watch your machine spin across the canvas as it creates a unique painting.
A Split Second
StyleClash – The Painting Machine Construction Kit is one of three short video games developed as part of the video game research project A Split Second – a collaboration between Submarine Channel and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Our aim with A Split Second was to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations between visual artists and game designers, and to explore the concept of artistic authorship within the context of video games. Three unique short games are the tangible end result of A Split Second.
The video game projects produced by Submarine Channel and Stedelijk Museum were made with the support of the Dutch Game Fund and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, SNS REAAL, VSB Fund and Submarine Channel.
