Since I’d long since disassembled the original Sketching Device, I made this new one for the PASS and Lawrence Hall of Science exhibits:
The base is heavy foam with a nice grippy rubber bottom, so it doesn’t vibrate around the table; the stage is mylar sliding over acrylic.
Sensitive Research was exhibited in the Art Gallery at Siggraph 2003. Here’s a few photos from the exhibition.
At first, they put it inside a glass box– missing the point of an interactive piece. So I sneaked the box off in order to let people tweak the knobs. By the end of the exhibit, both knobs were broken.
Lev performed at Artbots 2003, the robot talent show, at the Eyebeam Atelier in New York City, July 12-13, 2003. Here’s a few photos from the event.
Visit artbots.org to see all the other wonderful art machines.
If you were at artbots 2003 and have video or audio of Lev, please share it with me! I was too busy to get any good video of Lev in action.
The wind-up mermaid box was exhibited at the Mermaid Show at the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center, Brooklyn. Here’s some photos from the show.
These are some of the drawings made by visitors to Artbots in collaboration with Sketching Device #1.
Note: you can purchase any of these drawings for $45 each, or if you really hate them, I will destroy them for you at $75 each.
