Digital Craft People’s latest project centres around the creation of unique drawing machines by Damien Borowik, which in turn are used to create unique drawings. In an iterative process, where the artist continually develops the digital and mechanical capabilities of the machine, artist, code and machine combine to make graphical drawings with exquisite mark-making qualities.

This drawing has been made using one of our industrial drawing machines on Fabriano 4 smooth paper at 230 gsm.
It consists of 2 layers of lines set at different angles to give the cross-hatch effect similar to the traditional etching process.
This composition is a unique drawing made by artist's hand-crafted drawing machine.
Starting from the centre of the first square, the machine is slowly pushing the pen, spiralling outwards by moving the motors forward then backward in a sequence, increasing the length of lines to draw after each cycle.
The lines made in those drawing varies from one iteration to the next, making each drawing unique.
This composition is a unique drawing made in two colours, black and orange.
The defect you can see on the drawing are made by the machine during the drawing process, as well as the interventions of the artist who works with the machine to create such a unique art piece.
