I have produced numerous self-generated drawing devices such as a drawing bot that hacks motor-operated skateboards and uses the movements of double pendulums to generate surfaces that resemble graffiti and a drawing device where multiple modules change their movements in response to changes in the environment and depict gigantic murals over a long period of time, both together with collaborators and on my own. Through these works I would like to think about the issues of “who the creator of a work is, what exactly a work is, whether it is possible to generate creativity, and what precisely creativity is”.
I will ponder whether it is possible for computers and machines to produce creativity autonomously, what exactly a work is, who the creator is, and whether these are important.
