PyroGraph – Drawing machine that listens and burns

Created by Bjørn Karmann in collaboration with Nicolas Armand and Lars Kaltenbach, PyroGraph is a CIID project inspired by the thermal printers used for receipts in all shops. The PyroGraph analyses an image and converts it into dots that aare then burned with a 450 °C tip on to paper. The time of contact between the iron and the paper determines the grayscale of the dot; the longer it presses against the paper, the darker the dots get.
