Harvey Moon’s Drawing Machines

An nice interview on The Creators Project with the artist Harvey Moon, who uses drawing machines as his medium of expression.

Notice how simple the mechanics of the original drawing machine is, there are two (most likely stepper) motors controlling the length of the string to position the pen and that little servo + wire mechanism to allow the pen to be moved away from the wall. That’s it. The rest of the complexity is in Processing, determining what to draw wither based on camera input (tracking the cricket) or on the analysis of an image.
