ArtSBot is a set of autonomous robots that can produce paintings and drawings based on randomness and stigmergy. The paintings are the result of a self-organized process based on mobile robots that interact via the environment.
Leonel Moura is an artist born in Lisbon, Portugal, whose art merges with architecture, philosophy, science and technology. He has published several books on art, social analyses and science.
