Hektor Meets Dexter Sinister

6PM – 12AM

Machine, man and mathematics unite for a special 6-hr event at the Swiss Institute. The painting machine “Hektor,” brainchild of artist and designer Jürg Lehni, will perform for a live audience, making a series of paintings on the walls in the Swiss Institute gallery and hallways. Consisting of a spray can, two small motors and a computer-coordinated belt, Hektor replicates the motion of a graffiti artist’s hand, making lo-fi graphics with digital brains.
