This project aims to explore the relationship between intuitive decisions and deliberate calculations, examining whether they are conflicting or harmonious.

Using a sensor attached to a pencil, the project captures the drawing movements of the user and sends the data to a CNC machine as x/y coordinates. Participants are invited to draw on the acrylic surface, and the drawing machine responds accordingly.

This interactive experience encourages participants to reflect on the complex relationship between intuition and deliberation in decision-making.
