In Netflix’s skewering take on the art scene, Velvet Buzzsaw, art comes to life with dire consequences. In several scenes, there’s as a creepy, killer robot art installation haunting one of the protagonists. If that wasn’t enough to give you nightmares, now there’s a real art robot to haunt your dreams.

Art and technology intersect again, but this time in real life. The UK based Engineered Arts is working with a British gallery to create a robot that can draw what it sees. The robot, named Ai-Da, will resemble a real person and use it’s AI enabled camera to take in a person’s facial features and draw what it sees.

Ai-Da is new to the art scene but she already has competition. Christie’s recently sold a painting created with AI for $432,500. Ai-Da, however, already has her first exhibitions planned. After making her debut at the University of Oxford in May, her drawings will be shown in London later this year.
