DEFINITY 00 collection
A conceptual approach to robotic manufactured art.
We were Inspired from philosophies in pop art.
Liechtenstein's paintings interpreted how the machine prints an image in a representation of dots. Warhol's interest with the machine's mass production and it obscure differences. We wanted to take it a step further.
We asked the questions:
How can art be generated? Can art be automated? How much human interaction is needed? What level of robotic craftsmanship can be achieved?
By simplifying as many a complex setups as possible, the process informed our future work and philosophy of robotic manufactured art. We hypothesized the way the software would generate the organic forms into flowing 3D strokes with different degrees of complexity. Tested the integrity of the form for a rigorous 3D milling process.
Technical: One setup. One tool.
By placing a solid block of material upright onto a 5 axis milling machine, the cutter bit was able to access the top and sides, resulting in a finely detailed finished artwork.
