Perhaps 2001: A Space Odyssey’s Hal would have been a lot happier if he’d had a chance to draw as part of Stanley Kubrick’s film.
Coming to London’s Tenderpixel Gallery next month is an intriguing exhibition featuring one lucky such robot, who has been given the opportunity by its creator, Goldsmiths researcher Patrick Tresset, to get cracking on some creative briefs.
At the exhibition Tresset will exhibit three robotic installation, each of which combine robotics, computing and art. Visitors will be able to put the machines to the test by having their portrait sketched by one of the machines that was developed during Tresset’s residency at the JWT Innovation Lab in London. To whet your appetite, here’s a video of the machine in action below.
New Work by Patrick Tresset runs from 17 June- 9 July at Tenderpixel, 10 Cecil Court, London, WC2N.
