Nonhumans.net is an artist collective who work on artworks created by computer programs, robots, and other such electronic objects. One of their latest projects entails having enemies from the NES game Legend of Zelda create drawings for them, and the results are fascinating. Hit the jump to find out more.
The guys at nonhumans.net had enemies from the game such as Leevers, Peahats, Darknuts and others amazingly draw out works of art for them. They did this by hooking the game up to a HP 7475A Pen Plotter, which drew scattered lines based solely on the movements of the enemies.
Currently, there are 12 unique Zelda pieces, which are 8.5 x 11 pen drawings on acid-free cardstock. You can “pay the monsters for their artwork” which will cost you 0.46692186 Bitcoins, or approximately $100 USD. A percentage of each sale will supposedly be placed in to a “nest egg” for when computer programs are legally allowed to own currency, or anything at all for that matter.
The drawings are certainly unique, and although they don’t appear too impressive at first glance, knowing how they came about and the process they were made makes them very intriguing pieces of art. They are definitely creative if nothing else, and I suppose you can’t really fault them for that.
What do you think of these drawings? Would you consider purchasing one? Let us know.
