The Pollock Machine

February - March 2016 with Kurt Cheang and Jess Monigal

A fun experiment in learning how to use and code arduinos, the Pollock Machine takes advantage of the rotation of motors to spin plates which then have paint dumped on them.  After the fun is had, the machine can be pulled apart into not scrap, but works of machine art.
