Kunstrasen

machine

2009

Our first drawing machine: A little robotic device to burn any vector graphics into urban lawns.
Kunstrasen is mainly a tool for inscribing temporary messages into public greens, for recapturing the common space. Its guerilla aesthetic is joined by partisan tactics: the branded image appears only one or two days after the actual act. About two weeks later the grass has regrown and all evidence will be erased.
With a lot of help from Woeishi Lean.

Material: steel, aluminium, rubber, electronics, bunsen burner
