Digital Muscle Control Drawings

(Visual Art by Computer-Controlled Human Gestures)

This project involves a collaboration between the Department of Visual Art and the Department of ArtiFacial Expression. It produces automatic drawings by means of computer-controlled human gestures. The techniques developed for the project ArtiFacial Expression are used here to control the movements of the hands of a human person who has a piece of paper in one hand and a drawing pen in the other.
