Google is hardly new to the art scene. But its latest project, a partnership with Barbican (home of the London Symphony Orchestra), actually has it helping curate an exhibit of what it calls DevArt -- interactive installations built around technology. The internet giant wants artists to "give life to code, letting it spill from the screen and onto the canvas." That means everything from Kinects to typewriters are game (and we're confident there will be a healthy amount of the former) so long as the creator puts their considerable developer talents to work building something unique and beautiful. A handful of artists have already been commissioned to contribute, but Google is opening up submissions to the public. Wannabe developer artists can head to devart.withgoogle.com to pitch their project. The winner will receive a Google-funded budget of £25,000 to realize their vision, which will ultimately be shown at the Barbican, where millions of tourists and art lovers will see their creations.

The commissioned artists, Karsten Schmidt, Zach Lieberman, and duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet, will be documenting the birth of their new works. So, if you're in need of inspiration ahead of the March 28th deadline, you can follow along as these four delve into their own creative processes. In the meantime we'll be taking bets on how many Arduinos make it into the final exhibit. (I'm guessing 37.)
