/ Drawing With Wind

Material: wind vane, robotic arm, wind, drawing board
Scale: 50 x 120 x 160 cm
Year: 2020
A collaboration between Ashley Yuqi Zhang and Hua Zhang

The machine detects wind speed and direction, feeding fluctuant weather data into a robotic drawing board that moves, rotates and wiggles based on the live data. The artist attempts to cooperate with the apparatus, making marks on the unstable surface, and turning the invisible feeling of wind into abstract drawings.
