Mechanized Drawings, After William Morris

2017

 

This series of robotically produced drawings builds upon the 2016 After William Morris series, extending the logics developed in that project to automated processes of scripted mechanical motion. The drawings adapt the standardized and repetitive wallpaper designs of William Morris into a parametric and robotic framework that allows for variation in both geometry and material properties. Subtle  geometric variations programmed into the organic patterns explore the role of difference in automation. The use of color and changing sequence of operation indexes the time-based contingencies of the drawing process.
