#1 Drawing Machine

Using any materials you wish, create an experimental/DIY/jank drawing machine. Perhaps your machine is an instrument to release the image that is trapped inside some everyday object, or perhaps your machine is a witchcraft you have constructed, and its scribbling is a divination. (For some ideas, see these notes.) Record a brief (10-15 second) video of your machine in action, and take a photograph of the drawing it created. Be sure to have your video and photo ready by the beginning of class on Wednesday, September 1.
