Human Study, 5 Robots Named Paul (5RNP)

Media performance

Patrick TRESSET [France]


5RNP is an installation / performance with robots and humans. In a scene reminiscent of a life drawing class, the human is sketched by 5 robots named Paul. As stylised minimal artists, the robots are only capable of drawing obsessively. Paul was developed by TRESSET to palliate a debilitating painter’s block.
