Artificiata II (2012-2013) and Parallel Resonance series (2009-2011) by Manfred Mohr. Manfred Mohr is considered a pioneer of digital art. After discovering Prof. Max Bense´s information aesthetics in the early 1960´s, Mohr´s artistic thinking was radically changed. Within a few years, his art transformed from abstract expressionism to computer generated algorithmic geometry. Encouraged by the computer music composer Pierre Barbaud whom he met in 1967, Mohr programmed his first computer drawings in 1969. He was born 1938 in Pforzheim (Germany) and lives in New York since 1981. He is represented in Centre Pompidou, Paris; Joseph Albers Museum, Bottrop; Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Chicago; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Ludwig Museum, Cologne; Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Stuttgart; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum im Kulturspeicher, Würzburg; Kunsthalle Bremen, Bremen; Musée d´Art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg; Daimler Contemporary, Berlin; Musée d´Art Contemporain, Montreal; Borusan Art Collection, Istanbul; McCrory Collection, New York; Esther Grether Collection, Basel. Among the awards he received are: ACM SIGGRAPH Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art, 2013; [ddaa] d.velop Digital Art Award, Berlin 2006; Artist Fellowship, New York Foundation of the Arts, New York 1997; Golden Nica from Ars Electronica, Linz 1990; Camille Graesser-Preis, Zürich 1990.
