I've built an interactive robotic painting machine. It's an artificially intelligent system that paints its own body of work and makes its own decisions. It also listens to its environment and considers what it hears as input into the painting process. In addition to functioning as a visual artist, the machine also collaborates on multidisciplinary work. It's first such activity was in a collaborative work between Zack Browning and myself titled Head Swap, an art/music work for amplified violin and interactive robotic painting machine. In addition to painting during the performance, the machine also functions as a musical instrument itself, feeding pitched chords back into the work.
