Maschine

Maschine is part painting robot part crazy massive wooden contraption that uses a rotary paint sprayer on a wooden ramp.
Instead of the robot being the sole painter or creator of the work its acts here as a film through which the painter paints. It is a tool and a filter acting as line of communication which breaks the precise direct technique of painting. What I believe works here is how the form and movement of the painting robot makes it not just a printer to think of separately form the work but part of the work itself. It is also simultaneously part of the painter. This distinction is what I believe separates it from a lot of the other painting robots. I think the contraption nation of the painting robot itself could be pushed farther. Exploring with how far away a painting robot can be from a 2axis brush or standard manufacturing type arm can bring new inaccuracies and distinctiveness to robotic painting.
