Interactive Robotic Painting Machine
Illinois-based artist and composer Benjamin Grosser has premiered Interactive Robotic Painting Machine, a computer-operated machine that responds to sound, at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. His unique machine analyses recorded sound information, translating it into code that can be interpreted by computer algorithms, which result in the mechanical movement of a brush that transfers paint to a canvas.
Grosser’s system creates colourful compositions that question artificial intelligence and creativity. A video of the machine in action can be viewed on Vimeo.
