The Drawing Robot
The ‘drawing robot’ is an ongoing project whereby collaboration is fostered between the artist and an algorithmically controlled vertical plotter. The machine itself comprises two stepper motors, string, servo, pen, code, arduino and gravity. As each motor moves it winds the string and drags the attached pen to produce delicate line drawings. The forms produced reflect the mathematical and mechanical precision of machine and code, modulated by the eccentricities of real world chaos and imprecisions.
