Switch Accessible Art

Ambiomat art.

Choice and Control

With the right system, artists of all abilities can create art of their own using one switch alone.


The Ambiomat is a one-switch Mosaic art creation tool for all ages. Saves a PNG picture file after each completed run, that can be printed off using Window's print wizard. By Rob Fearon.

Rough ideas for non-interventionist art creation:

Make style books for people to choose from - that have fixed rules as to how each example sheet was created (only to be broken by the artist - not the helper). Choose deliberately - or at random (flick through - hit a switch to stop - that is the system to follow).

Make rules to be selected at random - e.g. 1= red 2= blue 3= orange 4=black 5=yellow 6=white - get the person to throw a die to roll and select - if they can't deliberately. This is their own pure luck.

Time art creation

Use computer art package FX such as blurring, glare and so on using the same method - or from a flick book.
