MAD - Machine Aided Drawings

Drawings and Tiles created in collaboration with a Drawing Machine

6 drawings of a Qing Chinese vase on a tiled floor with illusionary frames. The drawings were created with an Axidraw, but each one is different. The artist, Vanessa Rosa, moved the paper or the pen holder while the machine worked. It's as if Vanessa could recreate the pieces in collaboration with the machine.
