I found a UC Berkeley MFA student who does robot art. Robot art! What could be more perfect for Creative Geometry class? The artist, Laura Greig, a fellow ex-engineering student from eastern Pennsylvania built Nila for her thesis project out of a coupe of servo motors, some fishing wire, and a few spare parts. So it was that on a hot Tuesday, I took my two classes for a cross-campus field trip to the art building to meet a painting robot.
Turns out Nila also takes a photo every minute and Laura compiled this YouTube clip of the day. I’ll be damned if it isn’t the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. (If only the YouTube video still worked)
