Remote Control Car (Akira Kanayama)
Kanayama placed a tank (can) filled with paint on a toy radio-controlled car and made it move. There is a hole in the bottom of the tank, and the paint dripping from the hole is used to paint the picture. This work has been compared to Pollock's dripping, but because it is created without human hands, the traces of individual skills and of the people who painted it are gone, creating a very cool method of painting that stands out more than the work that was painted, and the ideas that made it possible.
