Autotrace #5 (Warhol's Soup Can)

2010

About

"Autotrace #5 (Warhol's Soup Can)" was created by MTAA in 2010. To create the work, the artists traced a digital image of one of Andy Warhol's famous soup cans using off-the-shelf graphics software. They then sequenced the resulting vector shapes into a 60fps digital video: one video frame per shape. About Autotrace MTAA's Autotrace series is a group of digital videos, images, and performances where the artists take a digital reproduction of a well-known artwork and then use off-the-shelf graphics software to automatically trace a digital bitmap image, which transforms it into a collection of digital vector images. Different strategies are then used to present a new, original artwork from the auto-traced image.
