Hektor appears live in New York

I finally got to experience Hektor, the portable graffiti output device first hand last night at the Swiss Institute. While earlier works focused on typographic explorations, these mathematically inspired patterns were hypnotic to watch as they plotted out in one continuous motion. Hektor's creator Jürg Lehni developed a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator based on Scriptographer allowing files to be parsed via a JavaScript. The only limitation defining the complexity of a piece seems to be the amount of paint a single spray-can holds, that and a well ventilated space to work in.
