Painted by Robot

The Senseless Drawing Robot is a painting robot that interprets nearby street and sidewalk traffic and turns it into sprays of pigment. The robot is turning chaos into order, and then injecting that order with a bit more chaos. Japanese designers So Kanno and Takahiro Yamaguchi have found a way around the input-output nature of these drawing machines by mounting a double pendulum on top of a modified electric skateboard and a pressure-based paint system. The Senseless Drawing Robot has a level of unpredictability akin to Pollock’s dripping brush. Can we earnestly claim that this robot is doing things all that differently from Pollock?

Should men be able to give birth to children?
