Dr Miu Ling Lam is a media artist and researcher of robotics and computational imaging. Impression Machine is her recent robotic art installation exhibited in Leonardo da Vinci. Art & Science Then & Now. In this work, a digital camera is connected to a 6-axis robot arm. The camera moves along some trajectories while taking long exposure photographs. A display shows a sequence of 2D contours which is tightly synchronized with the camera pose. The 2D patterns are combined in the captured long exposures and constitute some 3D geometric shapes that were depicted in Leonardo’s drawings for his study of perspective.
