Paul-IX le vaniteux, passes time by drawing a still life from observation. The ensemble of objects depicted seems reminiscent of a Vanitas of the XVIth century; a type of motif traditionally depicting objects that symbolise different aspects of the futility of human earthly pursuits. 

The irony of an artificial agent commenting upon human behaviours and mortality is counterbalanced by the knowledge that, just as the Nexus-6 in P. K. Dick's "Do androids dream of electric sheep" the Paul series of robots have, a short life expectancy. Anyway, what is the point for such a robot to dedicate its existence to drawings that comments on human existence rather than be a utilitarian slave as expected of it? 

The Paul series of robots are artificial agents obsessively focused on the drawing practice. Paul predecessors were originally developed to palliate a debilitating painter’s block and as such can be seen as creative prosthetics or behavioral self-portraits. Even if the way the Pauls draw is based on Tresset's technique, their style is not a pastiche but rather an interpretation influenced by the robots' characteristics.

Paul IX will be exhibited at Goldsmiths, University of London part of the "Creative Machines" exhibition, produced by S. Horak and curated by W. Latham, F. Fol Leymarie and Atau Tanaka.

Artist-Roboticist
Introduction



Patrick Tresset is a French artist that uses sciences and technologies to investigate human artistic activities and our relation to machines in particular our relations with robotic entities. In the context of his art practice, Patrick uses what he calls “clumsy robotics” to create autonomous entities that are cybernetic representations of the artist, and in a certain manner representation of himself. His robots are based on advanced technologies using research findings from computer vision, artificial intelligence and cognitive computing.

Patrick encountered and practiced computing, painting, drawing and sculpture from an early age in France. Following a degree in Business Computing, Patrick migrated to London to become a painter. Between 1991 and 2003 his work was exhibited in solo and group shows in London and Paris. In 2003 Patrick lost his ability to paint and draw, he has since been working on computational and robotic systems that are able to draw.

This research has led him to join Goldsmiths, University of London, to study for a Master of Sciences in Arts Computing. Until 2013 he co-directed the AIkon-II project with Prof. Frederic Fol Leymarie. The AIkon-II project investigated the observational sketching activity through computational modeling and robotics and is in part funded by a 3.5 year research grant from the Leverhulme Trust. Patrick also created the creative robotics course taught to post-graduate students in the computing department at Goldsmiths. Patrick is currently a Senior fellow at the Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz in Germany and a visiting research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London, United Kingdom.

Patrick’s work has been internationally exhibited in solo and group shows, and other events in galleries, museums and other public spaces. See here for details

Patrick’s work has featured internationally in the media (Press, TV, Radio and Online).
Patrick is currently represented non-exclusively by Tenderpixel Gallery, London, UK.. Patrick is also represented non-exclusively in France by Bloom Digital Art
