Machine Studies by Patrick Tresset
Human Study #1, 3RNP is a theatrical installation where the human becomes an actor. In a scene reminiscent of a life drawing class, the human takes the sitter's role to be sketched by 3 robots.
The drawing sessions lasts between 30 and 40 minutes, during which time the human cannot see the drawings in progress. The sitter only sees the robots alternating between observing and drawing, sometimes pausing.
During the performance the model’s role is to pose motionless for robots. The original drawings will be included in the "Collection", a series that is composed of over 12,000 drawings of participants. "Collection" is a monumental collective work that will be exhibited and published in different forms. Sitters will also be able to purchase their drawings.
