The "electropollock" is the recent invention combining technology, art and robotics from ::vtol::

::vtol::, the alias of Moscow-born audio-visual artist Dmitry Morozov, has created an electro-mechanical drawing machine aptly named the electropollock. The machine works by translating music into a special algorithm that controls a series of electric valves, servo motors and a fan for spraying paint. Depending on the frequency and overall flow of the music, “the device varies the intensity of ink supply, the speed with which the paper is moving, and the activity of the brushes.”

Though the machine might not be Jackson Pollock's successor, it offers a glimpse into a field of robotics that have creative potentials.
