a machine inspired by a nostalgia of modernism, an absurdist algorithm.

fontanaBot (2008) is a sattelite arm programmed to autonomously design and execute ‘slash series’ works as an homage to Lucio Fontana. the robotic arm is equipped with a vibrating razor blade. the programming decides the number of slashes, where they start and where they end. fontanaBot is a collaboration from the Mr. Bricolage team, Asmuth & Stone. click here to go to the Mr. Bricolage blog.
