Robert Howsare - Drawing Apparatus
Now this is neat. Howsare rigged up a couple of turntables so that they could draw pictures. See a video of this contraption in action at the artist’s website.
The end results are like a large scale, automated Spirograph drawings.
My first thought was that it’s like an analogue equivalent to circuit bending.
Watching this got me thinking further about synesthesia and visualization, and various forms of automatic or generative music, since it looks like a robot DJ who spins visual rather than musical loops.
So if you were watching a “normal” DJ in a more traditional musical context, & you could see the loops rather than hear them, would they always look like this?
