Jen-Hui Liao is a graduate student at the Royal College of Art in England.  At their annual graduate student exhibition, Liao unveiled his brilliant project: a drawing machine that takes the users physical hands to produce a self-portrait.  To explain it in rudimentary terms, the computer analyzes the image of the user from a camera and directs their hands to specific directions--the end result being an image of the user's likeness.  It is rather difficult to translate exactly what this drawing machine does in its entirety so please watch the video clip of it below.  I must say, the product of these drawings are rather stunning.  Works of this nature bring about interesting questions of self-fabrication and of identity and autonomy in art making.
