In an effort to establish new platforms for public art and performance, the
multimedia duo SWEATSHOPPE has developed a new interactive technology that enables
them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture. Dubbed
"video painting", this technology allows them to essentially "paint" video onto any
surface. Shooting in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, the duo spent weeks
documenting their work in urban settings to create "The Landing" the first in a
series of episodes that showcases their work as artist, technologist and performers.
" I have seen some pretty cool electronic graffiti techniques in the past, but multimedia performers Sweatshoppe’s method...beats them all."
"The gimmick alone is striking, but it’s ultimately the design – as usual – that carries their creation and draws you in"

"they’ve taken projected video and applied it to the physical act of bombing–which is one for the history books"
