Patrick Tresset

PopTech 2011

Patrick Tresset, a French artist/scientist currently based in London, uses what he calls “clumsy robotics” to create autonomous cybernetic entities that are playful projections of the artist. He co-directs the Aikon-II project with Frederic Fol Leymarie at Goldsmiths College, University of London. The Aikon-II project investigates the observational sketching activity through computational modeling and robotics. Recent exhibitions in the United Kingdom include Kinetica Art Fair, Watermans Art Centre, Tenderpixel Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum, and The Science Museum.
