The Originals Factory, A Robot That Makes Abstract Paintings

Originals Factory by Liat Segal and Assaf Talmudi

“The Originals Factory” is an art robot that creates landscape paintings in the style of the American abstract expressionism movement. The robot was created by Israeli artists Liat Segal and Assaf Talmudi.

The Originals Factory is a work in progress fusing together and questioning digital, mechanic and plastic approaches to art, abstraction and originality. It is basically a DIY robot, built and programmed to create landscape paintings in the style of American abstract expressionism.
The computer system uses real time video input to control motor movement and pump actions to release paint drops on a large canvas. The drops are then drawn downwards courtesy of gravity, leaving thin colorful line marks.
