Tails of Head is a project by HYdeJII where a specially adapted robotic vacuum cleaner creates paintings using multiple colors.
Head-kun (aka Mr Head) is the artist. According to his (?) profile, Head-kun is 15 years old and a robotic painter converted from an unnamed robotic vacuum cleaner product by iRobot.
The process is very time-consuming but involves Head-kun traveling over the same space countless times, dripping different acrylic paints onto a canvas measuring 1,000mm x 1,000mm.
This is Spring Starburst (2015).
This is Spring Worm Hole (2014).
While paintings created by robots is not a new gimmick by any means, we haven’t seen one done by a vacuum cleaner bot like this before. Sure there was a nice light painting by Roomba cleaners and a iRobot Scooba 450 did some impressive seascapes, but Head-kun is surely the Jackson Pollock of this genre.
Here is how Head-kun created his drip paintings.
