Frieder Nake, interview

Intersection: International Art and Culture
Arthur M Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology at Peking University, Beijing
27 May – 27 August 2018

Frieder Nake’s work 12/7/65 No. 2, 1965 is a pioneering example of computer art in which the image is wholly machine-generated. It has “zero meaning”, he likes to say, even if somewhat ironically.

A series of black lines in a kind of sheaf is a reminder of the simple, if groundbreaking beginning of the genre, a far cry from what can be done today.



Frieder Nake. 12/7/65 No. 2, 1965. ‘Random bundles of straight lines’, computer-generated automatic drawing, 72 x 59 cm.
