A collaboration of the artist Liat Grayver (Berlin) and Oliver Deussen's e-David Painting Robot (Uni Konstanz) can be visited in the exhibition ' InComputable Imagery: Reimagining the brushstroke' at the Kulturzentrum am Münster in Konstanz.

A portable version of the e-David painting robot creates live paintings over the course of the show. The first initial brushstroke was positioned by Liat during the vernissage. From that point on, e-David took over and applies each of the successive brushstrokes. A visual feedback mechanism constantly generates new data to inform the robot’s continuous activity. Upon the completion of each brushstroke, the evolution of the new stroke is analyzed by the visual feedback and the “target” is reset according to the state of the evolving image.

e-David (Electronic Drawing Apparatus for Vivid Image Display) is a pioneer project in the field of robotic painting and was one of the first to use a visual feedback system. It is an ongoing project at the computer graphic department headed by Oliver Deussen and is currently being developed by PhD candidate Marvin Gülzow. The software for the show was development by the graffiti artist Daniel Berio (Computer Science, Goldsmith University of London) and Emily Bihler (University of Konstanz).

Liat Grayver is a Berlin-based cross-disciplinary painter and media artist, investigating methods to redefine one of the primitive forms of art - painting - within the current technology-based era. She collaborates with the University of Konstanz on the e-David project since 2016 exploring various approaches to integrate robotic and computer languages in the processes of painting and creative image-making.

The exhibition can be visited in the Kulturzentrum am Münster in Konstanz from Nov 5 - Dec 5, 2021 and is supported by the SFB-TRR 161.
