New website "Machining Emotion" is launched by the Robotic Painting project team
The Robotic Painting project intends to establish a mutual relationship between human emotions and robotic machines. The Robotic Painting process is based on a series of consecutive steps. It starts with visual artist Ilona Lénárd painting fast and intuitive gestures on paper. These initial sketches are executed with an acrylic brush fixed to a 3d digitizer stylus pen they are augmented with the varying orientations of the stylus and the changing pressures of the marker tip. The augmented points list corresponding to the initial gesture serves as input for the code as written / designed by Ana Maria Anton and Serban Bodea, both designers and programmers. Within this process, our algorithm maps fractal self-similarity on the initial emotive curve, finally loading the file to instruct the giant ABB robot, which will execute its seemingly absurd task with utmost precision. It has been quite exciting to experience the robust robot unscrupulously execute such a delicate paint job on the canvases. The process was co-created by Kas Oosterhuis, creative director of VAA.ONL and head of Hyperbody TU Delft.
