Slow numbers

Nicolas Sanin

An automatic “artist machine” that rolls dice and creates a digital painting that visualizes the results of the continuous dice rolling.


As part of my thesis project, this is an installation that consists of an automatic dice roller that rolls dice by triggering reggaeton sounds, shaking a container attached to the speaker, making the dice dance. Then it captures the result using a computer vision system, stores the dice result sequence, and also creates a “digital painting” with the resulting numbers. The viewers can also see the number of times the dice has resulted in each of the six numbers, and compare these numbers to the visual result on the projection.
