Patrick Tresset is an artist who develops and presents theatrical installations with robotic agents as actors. Tresset develops robots to produce series of drawings, paintings and animations.
The robots in the exhibition behave as if they were artists in their own right, producing images that are not pre-programmed, but an autonomous interpretation influenced by the robot’s qualities and faults.
In the exhibition at Watermans, Patrick Tresset will present two new installations titled Whilst we were here, Human Study #5 and RNP-FB, Human Study #6.
On a large rectangular table a duo of ambidextrous mobile robots (RNP-A*) scribble continuously on a large sheet of paper and occasionally observe visitors with curiosity. They depict the environment from their own perspective and visual memories of events, especially the audience's physical presence.
