Godfather of Digital Art - Paying Homage to Manfred Mohr
One of my favorite digital artist is Manfred Mohr. He pioneered the idea of using a computer to create graphic since 1969. He was also one of several notable artists who helped pave the existence of Algorithmic Art. Back in the days, artwork was typically displayed on a computer monitor, printed using a raster-type printer, or printed using a plotter.
Isn’t it amazing how people pushed the boundaries of technology back in the 60’s?
Check out more of his astounding work.
Seeking nothing, he gains all;
Foregoing self, the Universe grows “I”;
If any teach Nirvana id to cease,
Say unto such they lie.
If any teach Nirvana is to live,
Say unto such they err; not knowing this,
Nor what light shines beyond their broken lamps,
Nor lifeless, timeless bliss.
by Sir Edwin Arnold in The Light of Asia
