Frieder Nake 1938-
Museum number: E.120-2013
Nake was among the first people to exhibit computer drawings as works of art, in Stuttgart in 1964. He is also considered to be one of the founding fathers of what we now think of as computer graphics. This work was produced using an algorithm written by the artist. Nake introduced random variables into the process, and could not fully predict the outcome.
