A Brooklyn-based artist Ted Lawson has used a robotic blood printer to draw a self-portrait. Fed intravenously to a machine, lawson’s blood traverses through the mechanical parts, while a robotic arm attached to the device, which was programmed to trace the designated illustration,carefully maps out the human form. Lawson have always used many different technologies to create his work and the goal is usually to find a way to turn those towards something organic and human. He said,"I’m generally not into doing selfies, particularly nude ones, but when I came up with the idea to connect my blood directly to the robot CNC machine, it just made too much sense to not try one as a full nude self-portrait."
