Roots & Networks


Back to the roots means into the future.
In the beginning of our series we introduce Frieder Nake artist and computer scientist. Educated in mathematics, he showed his computer graphics in one of the first exhibitions of algorithmic art worldwide. Since the 1970th he is a professor for graphic data and interactive systems at the university of Bremen. He presented his art in the Kunsthalle Bremen in 2004, in ZKM Karlsruhe in 2005, and in the DAM gallery in Berlin. Frieder Nake lives in Bremen.

His motto is
Think images, don’t make them
