This research will investigate methods of driving a 6 axis robot or Cartesian XYZ platforms or Delta robots to create an interface which transcribes a coloured image created through non-pixel based software through firmware drivers to create a reproducible coherent image. This project will be empirically based using iterative methodological approach.
Although artists and designers have adopted digital photographic rendering techniques, there has been no fundamental questioning of the underpinning theory behind the process. Four colour separation (halftoning) techniques invented in the early 20th Century has completely been adopted from both the commercial and computational expediency. The timing is now right for a radical re-appraisal of physical rendering techniques for printing.
