“Trace II” features a plaster cast of Bálint Bolygó’s head atop a rotating cylinder wrapped with drawing paper.

This is especially true at Boston Cyberarts, where snafus are forever written into the drawings made. The machines whirr and spin all the time, churning out pieces that feel more like the documents of a performance than art. The mechanisms, though, are charmingly retro. There’s nothing digital about them — no microprocessors or circuit boards. Just motors and metal.
