PATRICK TRESSET - 5 Robots Named Paul

Interactive installation - France

In a scene reminiscent of a life drawing class, the human takes the sitter's role to be sketched by 5 robots. The drawing sessions last up to 40 min, during which time the human cannot see the drawings in progress. The sitter only sees the robots alternating between observing and drawing, sometimes pausing. The human sitter is passive, the robots taking the creative sensitive role.
