My personal aesthetic is generally to keep things simple or minimal. I like clothing that can be used for multiple things without much text or logos. I like a simple workspace and room, and I like natural colors in my spaces, and love the look of minimalist modern art in my decorations.
I think my personal aesthetic draws on minimalism certainly, but I grew up around a lot of cubism work, and have always enjoyed Bauhaus.
I think my main project will stick with this general trend, but explore the intersection of mechanical devices and art to create natural looking patterning. I’ve been really interested in mechanically drawn artwork for a few years, have always wanted to build a machine that draws art mechanically with my own approach.
Many different forms of drawing machines exist. some are simple hand cranked tools, while others are complicated machines using multiple motors and computer software.
I think ultimately, the more hinge points you can add, the more complex and varied drawings that can be made. I’d ultimately like to get as complicated as I can depending on my budget. Initial guesses at cost on parts to build the machine pictured above (second one) are quite high, likely thousands. However, I could probably design something smaller for far less.
