Full Bloom of Sakura

Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom. A cherry blossom may open as a white flower and change color to pink over the course of a few days. The cherry blossom is more than just a beautiful flowering tree. It is a symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. This painting inspired from a wonderful time to visit Hanami festival in Japan. It is a very memorable time for me where sakura reflect on things past and look forward to new starts. In this artwork, the proposed collaborative robot or Co-bot system records volumes of digital data about the position and force form the artists. It can learn skill of artist such as tapping method, blending method, stabbing method, scrubbing method, sliding brush stroke and line brush stroke. When re-played, the robot will generate a perfect art work of the original strokes. Our software can use to edit the movement of robot and to improve the robot performance. Moreover, these digital files can be sent through the internet and the other robot can use to replay. White, blue, green, brown, yellow, red and black are used to paint the artwork. Several layers of paint are applied in this artwork. We use round brush size 8 mm. The sizes of canvas and frame is 18” x 24”.
