During Dubai Design Days 2016 I will show my FLOW carpets, based on a collage of fast and intuitive flow sketches on canvas. I will show one black and white hand tufted FLOW carpet and one larger machine tufted full colour printed FLOW carpet.
My presentation at DDD 2016 is supported by the Dutch Creative Industry [DCI] program Partners International Business [PIB] UAE.
The robotic painting project titled “Machining Emotion” establishes a mutual relationship between human emotions and robotic machines. The robotic painting process is based on a series of consecutive steps, initiated by fast and intuitive 3d sketches executed by the artists using a 3d digitizer and the leap motion controller. From these initial sketches – the “powerlines” – essential data like speed, angular movements and emotive pressure are used to feed the code with variables. Within this process some algorithms are mapping fractal self-similarity on the initial emotive curve, and eventually the 3d assembly is projected on a flat surface. Last step is to instruct the robot as to machine the emotive content with high precision. The human to robot interplay augments the art of abstract calligraphy with a cross-fertilization of intuitive gestures with logical rationale. The Machining Emotion #01 robotic painting is one out of a series of 4 large robotic circular paintings, executed during Dubai Design Week 2015.
