A Flying Pantograph exhibition at ACC (Gwangju, Korea)

Sang-won Leigh, Harshit Agrawal

In this exhibition, a line segment consisting of multiple strokes is created over time through the interleaving of autonomous and human-controlled flights. Through that, the tension between material resistance such as vortex and friction, the human movement, and additionally the authority and support by algorithms is discussed. The quadrotor will autonomously create marks on the canvas, where the control is taken by a human operator once approached. The human operator will have more room to delineate from the intended path, but both human and autonomous operation will be constrained by the central control software.
