The Automatic Painter
2x fast drying alcohol based ink on paper 330x85cm
Automatic painting system consisting of frame where you install canvas or paper to be painted on and the moving head with color collector, two rails for color distribution and brush for actual painting.
No robot nor machine would ever work without human input. It is possible to add color by spilling into the rail system for more physical randomness or to just spill it onto a canvas for more of a human input in process of creating the final image.
It explores the way machine deals with variables such as running out of color or roughnes and bumps on the surface.
