Artist figures out a way to be in three places at once and share his art with even more people.

Viennese artist Alex Kiessling has found a way to be in three places at once by employing the help of two robot assistants. The futuristic collaboration will allow him to create three paintings simultaneously, each of them in a different country.

This unique cross-border project is called “Long Distance,” and brings together art and technology in a way that has never been done before. The pair of industrial robots will be stationed in Berlin and London, replicating each and every movement of the Vienna-based artist in real time.
