A Brief History of Drawing Machines

Machine Drawing

I stumbled upon this project titled Machine Drawing Drawing Machines by Pablo Garcia a while ago, and then I found this great video of a talk he did at MIT about the history of drawing machines.

Pablo Garcia

Technology and art have always come together in some way…

It is a long video, and it was an hour into it before I realized Pablo was the guy behind the NeoLucida Kickstarter. I’m not as much a fan of drawing aids as I am machines, but there’s a ton of great info in the video.

There’s also a DrawingMachines twitter account worth checking out, as well as Pablo’s account, and his web site at pablogarcia.org

The video revealed a lot about machines and drawing that I’ll be thinking about for a while, especially in relation to my own work and views on these things. Good stuff!

“What did the working computer say to the non-working computer?”

“That doesn’t make any sense…”

“Who cares!?”
