„In a room there is a table ..“ were the words I used trying to describe my latest brainchild, it is an automaton that finally lays down a real thread onto paper after I have been creating drawings and paintings based on the simulation of virtual threads for years. This had to be done. The project was to a large part enabled by funding from the city of vienna culture department, enough to buy the required materials and to put some butter on my bread. Big shout out to Florian Prix for his support with transports and the more heavy duty machinery, i don´t even have a table saw in my own shop.
