Initially, the work features a white sheet of paper. Within its dimensions coloured pieces of masking tape, which serve as the basis for an abstract graphic, can be placed by the user. Subsequently, a mechanical arm reacts to the user's input by operating freely within the space which was created.
The drawing arm is based on the proportions of the human body and is therefore likewise restricted in its drawing capability. It masters curved and dynamic lines effortlessly while geometrical and
"computer-style" forms are a challenge. The device therefore occupies an inspiring sphere between man and machine, as it sometimes becomes irritatingly human. Programmed arbitrariness and fabricated coincidence. Passionate and scrawly lines stand in contrast to reproducibility and the strict following of rules of structure, which are followed by the device, similar to a "Spirograph". These divergences are also repeated in the construction of the machine. High-precision design und fabrication techniques come upon barren wooden slats.
The device enables man and machine to interact with a physical interface using masking tape and its high tactile quality. Different abstractions of one formal principle are created in quick succession.
