Manfred Mohr at The Simons Center Gallery, Stony Brook University
10 September – 12 November
Long Island, New York
Manfred Mohr’s artistic thinking was radically changed after discovering Prof. Max Bense’s information aesthetics in the early 1960’s. Within a few years his art transformed from abstract expressionism to computer generated algorithmic geometry. Further encouraged by discussions with the computer music composer Pierre Barbaud whom he met in 1967, Mohr programmed his first computer drawings in 1969. This exhibition is honored to feature Manfred Mohr’s early digital drawings produced at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1969.
