Robot Poetics: Toward a materially sensitive drawing robot

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paperpeer-review


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.
