Samsung Collaborates with Miguel Chevalier for “Origin of the Curve” Art Installation at IFA 2014

SEOUL, Korea – August 20, 2014 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today announced its partnership with world-renowned digital artist, Miguel Chevalier, to create the “Origin of the Curve” digital art installation, which will be on display at the Samsung booth during IFA 2014, from September 5-10. Through its brilliant merging of technology and art, “Origin of the Curve” represents a new and emotional approach to creative marketing. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience the power of the Curve with the fully immersive sensory experience provided by Miguel Chevalier’s poetic and elegant art installation that utilizes the incredible and natural design of the new Samsung Curved UHD TV.

The “Origin of the Curve” is composed of several overlapping arches and multiple Samsung Curved TVs showing virtual-reality artwork that shifts and transitions in choreographic movement to generative music provided by composer, Jacopo Baboni Schilingi. To amplify the multi-sensory and immersive experience, infrared sensors allow attendees at IFA 2014 to interact with “Origin of the Curve” by creating distinct visual fluctuations of intricate colored patterns on its curved TV screens.

“Origin of the Curve” is displayed in Ultra High-Definition resolution to provide a stunning and full-spectral rendering of the new Samsung Curved TV’s impressive UHD color capability.

“When working with digital imagery as a medium, having the ultimate in display capabilities is crucial to the successful execution of my creations,” said world-renowned artist, Miguel Chevalier. “The new Samsung Curved TV merged seamlessly with my artistic direction for ‘Origin of the Curve’ as it delivers the very best high-definition and color capability, coupled with an elegant curved design that draws you in and envelops the viewer.”

Demonstrating the increasingly merging worlds of art and technology, the “Origin of the Curve” takes inspiration from the specific shape and immersive, living-picture qualities of the new Samsung Curved UHD TV.

“We are connecting with our customers in a more emotional way through our collaboration with Miguel Chevalier,” said Yoonjung Lee, Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Starting from the IFA trade show, we will try to imprint ‘the Power of the Curve’ on the consumers' mind by displaying artistic, premium visuals on the Samsung Curved TV.”

Miguel Chevalier is a French artist, known as one of the pioneers in the digital art, working on the new style of art using a computer since 1978. He also has hosted and joined huge-scale projection exhibitions in major cities outdoor in public spaces, museums and contemporary art centers in Europe, Asia, US, and South of America.
