For 13 years I was trying to be a painter until I lost my passion for it. Since 2000 I have been researching and developing systems that could draw. It took me 10 years to be satisfied with the results. Since 2011 as an art practice I have been inventing building and exhibiting robots that draw from life.

Human Study #5, ‘Whilst we were here’. On a large rectangular table a duo of ambidextruous mobile robots (RNP-A) scribble continuously on a large sheet of paper and occasionally observe with curiosity the visitors. What they depict are the environment from their own perspective and visual memories of events especially audience’s physical presence.
