Patrick Tresset

Patrick Tresset, a French artist/scientist currently based in London, uses what he calls “clumsy robotics” to create autonomous cybernetic entities that are playful projections of the artist. He co-directs the Aikon-II project with Frederic Fol Leymarie at Goldsmiths College, University of London. The Aikon-II project investigates the observational sketching activity through computational modeling and robotics.
