Schöne Promoaktion einer Hotelkette, die ein paar Betten in Berlin, Paris und London mit tausend Sensoren ausgestattet haben, und die Bewegungsdaten während des Schlafs an einen Roboter schicken, der daraus nette Bilder pinselt. Währe ja richtig spannend mit EEGs und anderen, etwas ausgefuchsteren Datenquellen, aber hey, es is' ne Promo-Aktion, da darf man jetzt keine richtige Science-Kunst erwarten (doch, wohl!) Wie auch immer: Nett! Von WiredUK:

The above video shows the robot, much like an assembly line arm, reacting in sequence, tracing acrylic paints onto a black canvas in a visual and physical interpretation of sleep cycles and patterns. Only 40 participants can take part -- anyone who wants to try it out can enter a competition on the Ibis Facebook page. When the project is wrapped up in Novemeber there will be an online gallery of the artworks and guests will get an original to take home.

It's unlikely the finished article will have the same finesse of something like those works created by Patrick Tresset's robotic arms, which use a system of eye cameras to identify, track and draw human faces. Nor will it have the rigid repetitiveness of Swedish street artist Akay's rainbow-painting robot. Instead, being algorithm-led, the system enables humans to continue taking part in the artistic process -- becoming both the subject and the architect of the design. It's pretty unlikely the paintings will look much like the delicately formed one in the video either -- between paintbrush drips (we're not sure if the algorithm accounts for these) and average sleep patterns (many people fit into either the thrashing about sporadically or motionless and slumped-out categories, rather than the ethereal dancelike sleep of the woman in the video), the piece could potentially be a bit of an abstract mess.
