DON’T DIE FROM
A BROKEN HEART
Towards the end of 2012, as part of The Festival of the Mind in Sheffield, Artist Mattias Jones and a small team of technicians, coders and mathematicians developed a drawing system and put it to work. The robots drew one line pattern solutions, the shortest line possible, derived from theories on how bees fly from flower to flower. It ended up covering three walls and the floor of a twenty foot cube in one unbroken line.
