Presentation: Tweet"Machine Me"
From robots that print sculptures, to extruders that birth Play-Doh populations, to machines that make their own drawings, Fernando Orellana has collaborated with robots for over twenty years to make artwork. As a machine designer, a technologist and a user, Orellana has blurred the line between himself and machine in the creative process. The imagery and narrative that Orellana and his robots explore spans a spectrum from the generatively-made to the subconsciously-driven. This talk will cover his walk through this "automatous symbiosis," with a conversation of the various artworks that have been output along the way.
