What is it?
Jason Bruges and his team programmed four industrial robotic arms to create impressive patterns in a Zen rock garden, a large gravel patch filled with 14 tonnes of crushed black basalt surrounded by 4 tonnes of silver-grey granite.
The patterns resemble athletes’ movements and are inspired by different Olympic and Paralympic sports. Throughout the day, you’ll see up to four illustrations, each of which takes between 30 minutes and two hours to complete, depending on its complexity. The artworks remain on show for 30 minutes to an hour before the robots clear the surface again for their next creation. Over the course of the event, the robots will draw 150 different illustrations.
