IKEA invites LMX, a collective of ECAL Bachelor Fine Arts and Bachelor Media & Interaction Design students, to produce acrylic paintings with a programmable machine.
Using the extensive possibilities of randomness, colour mix, superposition and serial production provided by this new machine, the students create numerous artworks.
IKEA has invited LMX, an ECAL collective made up of students from the Bachelor Fine Arts and the Bachelor Media & Interaction Design programmes, to produce paintings with a programmable machine.
In changing the machine original settings (x, y and z shifting positions, cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white percentages, nozzle size, paint flow, random parameters…) and in using technology to address essential issues in painting, LMX tested the creative and repetitive gesture potential allowed by the mathematical precision of the code and the infallible mechanism of the machine.
During the IKEA Festival, LMX mass-produces some artefacts that were designed during a workshop that took place in the countryside around Zurich in February 2017, and continues to explore the potential of this machine, which showcases its production performance to the public.
Tuesday – Sunday, 10 am – 8 pm
