Black Hawk Paint is an agent-based, computational, robotic installation using small-scale helicopters. The artist creates computational control for autonomous, computer-controlled helicopters as a tool to paint onto a canvas laid horizontally on the gallery floor. The style is figurative of the system and emerges from the process.
Autonomous vehicles are becoming the standardize means for fighting in war-driven societies. As artist, we wonder how far we can stretch the use of unmanned military technologies. Does art have the ability to communicate through means of war technologies and what roll do the different people controlling and programming the autonomous vehicles have?
