Electropollock Robot Uses Music to Paint

Dmitry Morozov created Electropollock, a modern-day homage to American expressionist painter Jackson Pollock, famous for his drippy, abstract paintings. Morozov’s robot uses a similar method to get paint onto the rolling canvas, but the finished work is determined by music fed into the system. It makes for some weird and interesting art.

The Electropollock is built around an old printer mechanism that has been outfitted with solenoid valves and electric motors. There’s also an Arduino Uno board that runs a special algorithm that registers peaks in sound frequency and amplitude and then translates them into brush strokes and controls the speed of the paper as it moves through the machine and the rate that the paint is applied.

Paint is fed into a drip nozzle attached to a moving “print head” and a speaker rises from the back of the unit. Each painting is unique, and a vague visual representation of the music that was playing.
