As we saw in our November 2013 issue, we'll continue see projects like this one, robots drawing. A bit beyond the palette and canvas this project is a fascinating way to incorporate robots into artwork. Artist Matthias Dörfelt, created a Roomba-like robot with a random algorithm, Dörfelt places it on a square of paper and lets the little guy go to town. Known as the Robo Faber, it is great to see a robot creating such great work. Watch the video after the jump.

These extremely magnified photos by Toisuke Koyama reveal in fine detail of what is left behind when a tennis ball comes crashing down onto the court. The series is titled Thousand Impacts, suggesting the repetition and potentially massive variation in how this tennis ball residue may present itself.

One of the most fascinating artists to come out of the hip-hop and graffiti movements in the 1980s, as well as the highlight of MOCA's 2011 Art In the Streets and our issue done in conjunction was the late Rammellzee, a true visual and musical pioneer. Starting tonight, March 8, the artist's The Letter Racers sculptures will be on view in NYC for the first time, at the Suzanne Geiss Company. Do the Armory, then do this.

Colorado-based artist Pard Morrison creates geometric abstractions that he places in nature and captures them with photography. What we really hope is that Morrison leaves the pieces be for a random person to come across. That would make the project even better.

Melissa Kretschmer's "Plane Series" from 2007 combines graphite and beeswax on paper and plywood to create these multi-media abstractions that balance color and texture while creating spatial depth with multiple surfaces and varying degrees of opacity.

Magalie Guerin's paintings balance recognition and abstraction, some subject matter appearing more literally while others need to be uncovered through investigation or revealed by the title. Some appear more like abstracted ideas or formal moments while others are more easily detected as abstracted observation.

Jacob Tillman's new work dances around representation and abstraction. At times his work has an apparent representational image, while others it delves into abstraction that is beyond recognition, treating the work as its own object that is independent and free to develop in the best way possible.

We are going to be honest and say that finger painting in this way totally baffles us. What Judith Braun is doing here is quite incredible, as she is dipping her fingers in charcoal or pastels to create abstract forms and bilateral symmetry. You can get away with abstract, but this symmetry and skill here is unique. More after the jump . . .

This isn't so much of a lets remeber our cassettes and Game Boy, this is what is the best way to use these old devices in a way to make money. Christopher Locke had the best idea: Fossilize them. See what we mean after the jump . . .
