Harold Cohen, a classically-trained artist turned artificial intelligence researcher and professor, created drawing “turtles” and later the AARON computer/robotic painting system. Cohen looks at his traditional art exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in 1972, and then discusses the development of the AARON paint system beginning in 1973. Footage from the "Drawing" exhibit at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) in 1979 is also included. He describes the creation of murals that hung at the Digital Computer Museum in Marlborough, Massachusetts, and later the Computer Museum in Boston. He shows slides of his exhibition and examples of his early drawing “turtle” at work. Cohen shows examples of his traditional art works, as well as works created by the drawing turtle between 1973 and 1980, while presenting his views on art theory and artificial intelligence techniques.
