Tom Jennings and I designed and built this calligraphy robot for director Chris Milk and Radical Media, as part of “The Wilderness Downtown”, an interactive music video for the band Arcade Fire. The machine uses a custom pen plotter to print postcards generated by viewers, and it is intended to travel with the band. Tom wrote the software and designed the electronics. More documentation of this machine can be found on Tom’s World Power Systems website.
