Void – 3D robotic structure, suspended between buildings, paints with light

Ever since Jürg Lehni's printer mechanic sculptures artists have been inspired to build own mechanical drawing bots. Hektor (with Uli Franke), followed by Rita, Viktor have not only been vertical representations of mechanical drawings devices such as traditional plotters but they have utilised a specific method of moving a single point over a flat surface by the means of triangulation. Instead of using x and y coordinates in a cartesian manner, they used gravity as an added value to the method of positioning a single point in 2-dimensional plane. It would have been a natural progression to utilise this method in 3d but unfortunately the project never came to life.
