Artist, robots draw simultaneous portraits in three cities

Andy Warhol famously had a series of studios in New York called The Factory. Part of his oeuvre was assembly-line production of silkscreens. Sadly, he had to put up with human workers.
Would that Warhol were alive today to see Viennese artist Alex Kiessling in action. The painter has just produced simultaneous portraits in three European cities with the help of two industrial robots.
The stunt, which took place in Vienna, Berlin, and London, is part of the Long Distance Art project.
Call it telepresence art.
