Lead design / Project lead
Drawing inspiration from the Japanese Zen Garden, a team of four giant robot arms perform the meditative raking of an expansive gravel canvas. In a series of daily performances, these ‘gardeners’ work together to create unique illustrations representing the movements of athletes. Generated by a series of bespoke AI algorithms that analyse video footage of past Olympic & Paralympic events, some illustrations depict an event unfolding over time while others shine a light on one spectacular movement or sporting moment.
