Random art generator at Dorkbot Anglia

A great evening at Dorkbot Anglia hosted at Makespace and curated by Jo from Bad Timing.  Hopefully there will be more Dorkbot Cambridge events. It’s surprising that it didn’t already exist as there are so many interesting people/ ideas around here.

With David Chatting, Rachel Rayns

Random art generator. Flicker exhibition guide!

Looks great. This only happened thanks to the great Chris Miszak. So big thanks Chris and all the other brilliant people who gave their time to make it such a great exhibition. You can download the program here.

Note that the image had to be supplied to the printer before i’d finished making it. So instead of supplying a picture of a pile of wires and servos – a drawing instead. Nothing like a bit of a deadline to get things moving.

Built this for the Flicker exhibition at Smiths Row in Bury St Edmonds.  It’s based on a super8 projector with a clear film loop going through it. Ink is dropped onto the film and it’s them smeared/ smudged by a sponge and toothbrush as the film goes past. The film is then dried using a hair dryer and projected. The idea is that the film is clear when the exhibiton starts and completely black by the end.
