Impression Machine is a robotic system performing computational kinetic photography – a long-exposure photography technique for producing three-dimensional light patterns by tightly synchronizing the camera motion and display content at every time instant. In this installation, several three-dimensional geometries depicted in Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus are dissected into slices and reconstructed in long exposures.
