Unique pen plotter art

A short run of plots generated in a small window of time between adding new code, and fixing the bugs.

£95.00 GBP

  • The result of giving a robot a pen, paper, and some code with undiscovered bugs.

    The process used to create this artwork involves throwing together various algorithms in JavaScript and carefully controlling the output. However, when you screw up some of the positioning code and send the results to the pen plotter machine you end up with these doodles.

    This is one of nine unique plots I generated before I patched the bug in my programming. Each one is different, whichever one you pick will be yours.

    I've since fixed the code, so I'm not sure I'll be able to make these doodles quite like this again.

    Special Instructions

    The ink used in this work is archival-ink, light-fast and fade-resistant, the paper is acid-free and also fade-resistant. That said, it's still probably wise to frame it and hang it somewhere out of direct sunlight.

  • Pen plots are unlike traditional prints; each one is subtly different due to the interaction between the pens used, ink and paper.

    To further complicate/improve things, with traditional printing "Limited Editions" are identical prints, designed to be as close to the original as possible. However, with generative art, each plot is unique due to randomness in the algorithm.

    "Open Edition/Series" means there is no limit to the number that will be produced, but each one will still be unique and different.

    "Limited Edition" refers to a limited number of plots within a series and/or colourways and size, and again each one will be different.

    "Static" is used when each plot in a series will be the same without any randomness, this is normally found in the "Sacred Geometry", but I haven't posted any yet.

  • Orders shipped to the UK are sent using Royal Mail Tracked 24, £4/€4.5/$5*.

    Worldwide orders use Royal Mail International Tracked, with signature where possible (not all countries support signatures), £14/15.5/$18*

    Prints, as opposed to plots, are sent separately by The Print Space, which charge a flat rate of £7/€7.75/$9 to deliver outside of the UK.

    If you buy a combination of plots and prints, Shopify will somehow work out a shipping figure based on goodness-knows-what mystical calculations, your guess is as good as mine.

    *Approximate conversion rate. 

  • All plots are send flat without frames, in a protective sleeve, sandwiched between two sturdy sheets of card, like, super sturdy.

    A4 and smaller are send in board backed C4 and C5 shipping envelopes.

    Returns & Damage

    Sometimes, rarely, there's a chance the postal service will chew up and mangle your plot 😱  If this happens please send me a photo and we'll figure out a refund (less the shipping) or a replacement.

    Please note: As each pen plot is unique (unless otherwise stated) the replacement will be the "same" but in its own slightly different way.

    If you're unhappy with your plot and we can't work something out, then please destroy it in the most entertaining and interesting way possible within 14 days, send me photo proof, and I'll refund the cost excluding shipping.
