This weekend my robot and I were invited to Kuurne. An old abandoned flax factory was the setting for a free arts and music festival: ‘Splinters’. We set up shop in one of their spaces, this was when Olaf Verhaeghe shot this beautiful picture.
The drawings that get to go to these expositions are carefully curated and selected out of the multitude of pieces it has made in the past two years. Obviously the robot does not strike gold in every piece he makes. My personal estimates are a 10% succesrate…
But the simple act of him drawing on location is the real crowdpleaser here, not the finished pieces in their final, static, dead forms. Especially the young (or the young of mind) are drawn to it, seeing how they are able to get their parents in the same playful mindset is heartwarming.
