VIDEO: This giant mural is made by robots that simulate the mind of an abstract painter
Here is a work made by graffiti robots. Installed Gare de Lyon in Paris as part of the Némo Biennale (International Biennial of digital arts), which is held from December 2017 to March 2018, this mural consists of about thirty robots that draw before the eyes of travelers.
The work, created by the Japanese artists So Kanno and Yang02, is also present in the exhibition “The Facts of Chance” at the CentQuatre, in the XIXth arrondissement of Paris.
Below is a transcript of the video.
In the heart of the Gare de Lyon in Paris, a strange ballet takes place before the eyes of travelers. This work, called “Semi-senseless Drawing Modules” is a realization of two Japanese artists, So Kanno and Yang02. It is composed of about thirty robots that draw on a large mural of 30 meters.
Sensors collect data on the passage of users, temperature or humidity. They affect the trajectory, movements, and speed of robots.
“We tried to simulate an abstract painter in the idea that if changes in the environment affect his mind or the quality of his work, our modules must also be led by these changes” explain the artists.
The work is presented as part of the Biennale internationale des arts numériques, which is being held in Paris from December 2017 to March 2018.
