How does a robot arm index its motion?
MisPortraits is a series of robotic experiments in drawing, paint brushing to convert iconic portraits into tangible artifacts. The process is built on a rigorous translation of grayscale values into rotation angles, and it embraces the motion specific “accidents” of the six-axis robot arms.
