A Capricious Pathway

Cassie Suche

Executed by a robotic arm, this drawings experiments with the combination of mechanical process and physical matter.

In the development of this piece, markers, pens and brushes were repeatedly destroyed by the rigorous and repetitive physical impact of the machinery involved. The works provided a literal documentations of the physical limitations of tools, showing where they violently collided with the paper, and where they reached the end of their functional capabilities.

In this work, the precision of the robotic motion in combination with the gradual disintegration of the markers creates in a remarkably calm and ethereal aesthetic.
