When designer Paul Ferragut rigged standard felt-tip pens to a custom machine and created an interpretive program using openFrameworks, the result was colorful.
The pens move along a printer-like, mechanical slide and create different sized dots, or pixels depending on how long the pen is in contact with the paper. When layered and combined, Ferragut writes, these dots create a new take on the old artistic technique of pointillism.
