Action Jackson: Robot Artist

Posted 23 Mar 2007 at 20:56 UTC by steve Share This

Roland Piquepaille writes, "According to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, computer scientists at the Washington University in Saint-Louis (WUSTL) have built a robot that makes drip paintings like Jackson Pollock's -- who was also known as 'Jack the Dripper.' The robot, dubbed Action Jackson, can finish an 'artwork' in just minutes, like Jackson Pollock probably did. But the paintings by this robot can be bought for about $10, which is far from the whopping $140 million price paid last year for "No 5, 1948." Anyway, the article raises an interesting question: who is the artist, the software designer or the robot?" For more details on Action Jackson, see Roland's blog
