Cameron Robbins’ work harnesses the power of the weather, converting and using the energy inherent within natural elements like the wind, sun, rain and tides to create autonomous drawings.

Constructing mechanical instruments to translate this energy, Robbins engineers and hand builds unique analogue drawing machines that generate distinctive and repetitious mark making transcribing nature and its forces.

Solar Loggerheads is a large-scale drawing instrument that brings together conflicting forces of creation and destruction. Locked in a continuous spin cycle, two opposing kinetic armatures draw and erase across the same flat surface. Powered by solar energy, the drawing mechanism creates animated marks in a circular motion while the rotation of the eraser is activated by mains electricity.
