The Drawing Machine by Eske Rex, an artist based in Copenhagen, Denmark, provides one way to create art without actually creating it. Now that's a riddle. Essentially, he has built a big device reminiscent of something that would be used during a war in the middle ages. Outfitted with two pendulums, they move in a very precise manner to create large-scale artworks in colorful inks.

Created for the MINDCRAFT11 exhibit, which was held during the design week in Milan, the Drawing Machine by Eske Rex is able to produce "'infinite' elongated drawings," according to the artist's website. With a mathematical appeal, the sketches are incredibly intricate. It was built using larchwood, metal, vinyl, paper and, of course, a pen.
