Rising Colorspace – Drawing robot and an evolving system that overwrites itself

Created by Sonice Development (Julian Adenauer and Michael Haas), Rising Colorspace is a new installation by the duo for “Metropol Park“ at Köllnischer Park 6-7 in Berlin. It is the third 'systemic robot' installation of their colorspace series. Installation is comprised of a robot, drawing it's rising movements as bow-like lines onto a shiny metallic wall. All turns and falling movements are left out. Each line grows like a bending curve and modulates the colorspace after a daily colour-protocol creating an evolving system that continuously overwriting itself.

The painting emerges from a behaviour (a set of coded rules) the team have designed specifically for the installation. Two radial fans generate a vacuum on the bottom side of the machine. A sealing lip made from textile that is mounted loosely and holds the vacuum. Using this kind of loosely mounted fabric instead of e.g. rubber is a key element for this to work because it produces little friction and adapts very well to the underground. This technique is patented by a friend of the team, Achim Meyer, whom they collaborated with to realise the machine.
