Canvia, a digital art display, has been created to bring digitised version of famous artworks to life on a digital canvas with a realistic look and feel. using ‘ArtSense technology’ to simulate the behaviour of a physical painting or print, using built-in sensors to read ambient visual conditions.

Data collected by the sensors is used to actively adapt the displayed image, allowing the screen to appear light-reflective like physical art.

The art display was created by Palacio by crowdfunding on Kickstarter, with backers raising $166,777 includes a 1.8GHz quad core ARM processor and features 16GB of storage, allowing the display to store up to 10,000 artworks or images.



The Canvia display is able to be displayed in portrait or landscape mode and is linked to an online library of artwork, with artwork from a variety of genres, eras, cultures and media, with specific artworks able to schedule at specific times of the day, with tailor made playlists for specific themes and atmospheres.

Captions can also be overlaid over famous artworks, allowing users to learn more about details of the artwork displayed on the screen.
