Show Booklet in Word

Tom Lohre's show of art in the Clifton Market Window Box Gallery has closed but you can still see the work on the web site with prices.
Tom's newest paintings will be in the window box in the vestibule of Semesters, 313 Ludlow Avenue, a frat and sorority merchandise shop. They lost the key and since it was right next door to the Clifton Market Window Box, Tom asked if he could show his work in their window box once the Clifton Market show closed, if he got it working, and they said yes.

Show of Art Work by Tom Lohre and a Lego Robot Assistant named “Artisto”

Thursday January 3, 2008

Image for publication
Caption: This latest work by Tom Lohre was made with the assistance of his Lego Robot “Artisto,” shown. The robot lays in the color in and Tom refines the placement.

The Story:

In 1987 Tom started exploring the possibility of having a machine paint. In 2003 he discovered Lego's MindStorm Robotic system and spent four years learning the software. On January 5th, 2007 at 9PM Tom finally cracked the code to write a program that took information from an image in the computer and fed it to a robot.

In the past year, Tom has learned that “Artisto”, the name Tom has given to the robot, is like a classical assistant. Artisto lays one of eight colors in generally the correct spot and Tom manipulates it to refine it’s placement. Tom initially creates an image in the computer that Artisto follows. The painting process takes 18 hours for a 16” x 20” having 4163 dots. Tom can turn “Artisto” off while working on a painting so the painting does not have to be done all at one time. All the paintings in the show are close ups of faces because the resolution is so low that he has to rely on the viewer to fill in the blanks.

In the future, Tom sees “Artisto” having 16 colors to select from with Tom working closely with Artisto continually adjusting the paint as it is laid down.
