Awkward Lines

This is a piece of abstract artwork showcasing multiple colorful lines that, when brought together, form shapes. Just like there are people who try to isolate themselves from society or are simply too awkward in public, this painting goes to show that by coming together, we can form beautiful shapes that take on meaning. The robot is composed entirely out of VEX robotics pieces. The Robot works like a 3-D printer (which was our inspiration): it has a X (moving right and left), Y (moving forward and backward), and Z (moving up and down) axis. The paintbrush itself is attached to a worm gear that goes up and down to apply pressure. The worm gear contraption is then entirely attached to a mechanism that moves horizontal across the X-axis. That mechanism is then, again, connected directly to a similar mechanism that travels vertically across the y-axis. This is done by using several gears, motors, and linear motion bars. The whole thing is hooked up to the mainframe and plugged into a battery.
