SAM The Drawing Machine exists to explore the tension between generative graphics and their potential tangible representations. For its field trip at the Centre Georges Pompidou, SAM took on the role of a portraitist and an entertainer. Young visitors could take a picture of themselves, get a printed “join the dot” version of it and draw themselves as SAM was doing the same. SAM is an ongoing project from artist and teacher Mark Webster as part of his research on computational design.
