Patrick Tresset presented 6 robots in a site-specific artist’s studio. Gallery visitors were able to have their portrait sketched by 6 of Tresset’s robots. Each robot would draw the sitter from a different point of view; the drawings would then make up the exhibition in the space. The public could pre-book a slot to come and sit for a portrait. The robots also drew all the artists and musicians involved in the festival to create a special exhibition.
