Paintpusher

Which sketch represents the purest representation of the visual idea? The sketch on paper? The sketch in processing? The sketch of my small plotter?




I designed a dialogue between a machine to produce art. First, I make a sketch envisioning the final output. Then I translate the initial visual idea into code (referred to as “sketches” in Processing), and the SVG output is rendered out by a small consumer 2-axis robot plotter, generating iterative copies of oil paintings where paint has been pushed around on the surface of the prepared canvas.


The different types of process sketches are displayed, raising the question of which sketch represents the purest representation of the visual idea.
