back in 2011 designboom covered the work of japanese new media artists so kanno and takahiro yamaguchi with their senseless bot here,
they have now sent designboom their latest project – the senseless drawing bot sequel, number 2. the self-propelling contraption sprays
sporadic linework across a surface through the means of a double pendulum. the chaotic artwork is achieved through a single automated
arm provisioned with a rotary encoder attached to the fulcrum of the pendulum. as the robot sways from side to side,
the swinging motion of the arm is intensified through the physics of inertia, which then manifests itself erratic painstrokes through the
quick release of paint from the spray can.
