    Robot Poetics: Toward a materially sensitive drawing robot

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2018)

    London, UK, 9 - 13 July 2018


    Paul O'Dowd



    This paper opens a discussion on robot poetics: an alternative perspective on the design of robotic technology. By considering robots as metaphorical constructs they may provide new knowledge on humanity. This position is explored relative to the on-going development of a drawing robot, which will behave sensitively to material aspects - both its own physical embodiment and worldly situation - to exhibit a visual art expression intrinsic to the robot.
