I made a “drawing robot” by modifying the use of a blender to make “paintings.” I mixed together various ingredients, including coconut milk, flour, and oil, then added colorful ingredients such as beets, purple cabbage, cocoa, or hot sauce. I used these mixtures as “paint:” I blended them on the high setting while holding a piece of paper over the blender, which caught the splatter from the blender. This created textured, dynamic images that are reminiscent of the cosmos.
