Orbit – A drawing machine

in Collaboration with Dirk Erdmann, April 2016

Orbit is a simple machine, which is drawing autonomous around his center of gravity. Inspired by the space orbit, the installation is drawing alternating, radial and linear around itself. With two mechanical transmissions, a source of electricity and a pencil, the machine draws sinus lines. In the randomness of the constant motion, Orbit creates generative patterns. The project is an experiment on how artworks get an own exist without code or digital media.
