Drawing Automata

Drawing Automata is a robotic art installation that creates sketches and drawings of people. The type of robotic arm seen in the installation is normally used in industrial production, while this project wants to liberate it, assigning it an artistic task. This interactive installation uses the Python Linedraw Library to transform a webcam photograph into a drawing, sketched by the robotic arm. Although all the processes in the Drawing Automata project are algorithmic, the final sketch of the person portrayed is drawn as if it were created by a human hand.
