Robo Faber is an autonomous drawing robot that’s programmed to sketch random artworks. Created by LA-based Matthias Dörfelt, the tiny Arduino robot is designed to echo the artist’s current creative aesthetic. It’s an unconventional take on the self-portrait: the concept is that Faber will be an offshoot of the artist’s creative thinking that remains frozen in time, replicating his current style long after he has moved onto different things.
