What is the relationship between an intuitive decision and a considered calculation? Are they conflicting or harmonious? From an initial feeling to a deliberate plan, are our decisions produced through collaboration or compromise?

In this project, a sensor attached to a pencil records the movement of someone drawing. The movements are sent to the CNC machine as x/y coordinates.

You are invited to draw a relationship between intuition and a deliberation, and the CNC drawing machine will respond.
