Matt W Moore Robot Drawings 1

Matt W. Moore is drawing outside the box, challenging our definition of art with his Numerically Controlled Series of “drawings.” Here he collaborates with engineer Aaron Panone to harness the power of a 3-axis CNC machine to draw his geometrically stunning works.

Ok, confession time. Unlike what seems to be about 99% of the current population, I am not a huge fan of video games. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the near addictive fun they are to play… in fact I almost stay away for that reason.
