A Japanese artist recently designed a robotic painting device that creates colorful abstract splatter paintings. Although robots have been programmed to do many things, this is the first time an individual has used a robot to create abstract artwork.
The robotic device is essentially a Roomba vacuum equipped with a series of paint bottles. The paint is programmed to drip at different times, which prevents all the colors from pouring out at once. The result of this process is a series of abstract paintings that closely resemble the work of Jackson Pollock. Although each piece looks spontaneous, the designs are meticulously thought out by the artist. Each piece is unique, meaning the robot will never produce the same work of art twice.
