A Drawing Machine that Records the Chaos of Pinball


Just like in the pendulum-based drawing machine by Eske Rex or in the art of Tim Knowles who attaches writing implements to trees, in this latest project titled STYN by Netherlands-based graduate student Sam van Doorn the seemingly random lines of chaos (or maybe just physics) are rendered visible using ink or pencil. Using modified parts from an old pinball machine van Doorn created a one-of-a-kind drawing device that utilizes standard flippers to control a ink-covered sphere that moves across a temporary poster placed on the game surface. He suggets that skill then becomes a factor, as the better you are at pinball the more complex the drawing becomes.
