DRAWING - Amsterdam / 15-09-2014 /
In the path of Drawing Montreal, Drawing Amsterdam was completed in summer of 2014. It took months to design, build and test the drawing contraption in Montreal, Canada. The cargo-like machine was shipped to the netherlands. Hauled behind a bicycle, It is designed in such a way to power and spin bits of graphite over white paper.
The more it spins, the larger the radius gets, thanks to a counter-weight balancing system. The drawing-head also reacts to road angle, bumps, accelerations and active braking. Making so that every drawing is absolutely unique and clearly descriptive of the path followed by the artist.
All the main streets, canals and public places were recorded during the performance. The artworks were exhibited at Amsterdam renown Original Dampkring Gallery. New York is the upcoming destination, later this fall.
