On the line between technology and art, the Senseless Drawing Bot
created by So Kanno
and Takahiro Yamaguchi
is probably smack-dab in between. Packed full of software to move more or less at random and a mechanical free-swinging arm that applies paint to the wall, there is truly no sense behind the robot's actions. However, after looking at its work, it's surprising how patterns seem to emerge. There's a naturalness to it, and its paintings begin to look like old buildings covered with graffiti.
It's a truly strange effect, and one enjoyed far more in video. Hit the break to see the senseless bot senselessly creating some art on a wall.
