The Interactive Robotic Painting Machine !

I’m glad to announce a project created by Benjamin Grosser called “Interactive Robotic Painting Machine“. The machine uses Python and Pyevolve as it’s Genetic Algorithm core, the concept is very interesting:

What I’ve built to consider these questions is an interactive robotic painting machine that uses artificial intelligence to paint its own body of work and to make its own decisions. While doing so, it listens to its environment and considers what it hears as input into the painting process. In the absence of someone or something else making sound in its presence, the machine, like many artists, listens to itself. But when it does hear others, it changes what it does just as we subtly (or not so subtly) are influenced by what others tell us.

One thought on “The Interactive Robotic Painting Machine !

  1. To put this in short. The program is running a performance of painting. Although influenced by the environment there is no aesthetic or personal input into the artwork by the machine or its algorithms . An “ART” work requires (Artistic Intent, Artifact and Reification ). Your system is lacking in Artistic Intent but has oodles of Reification. It is like a controlled car crash that you have asked others to describe.

    Though you as the artist have created the robot. So your intent, although not necessarily artistic, has created the artifact that paints. The paintings are superfluous to the “ART” work You might get more insight into what I mean by reading this
