Recodes & Newbies

This is a link list on interesting »recodes«, newly programmed and interpreted works of early computer art, and websites by some »newbies« in the field of algorithmic, digital imaging.

 Recode:    Processing Nees

»Processing Nees« was a students´ project at the Academy of Art and Design, which is part of the University of Applied Art and Sciences in Basel, Switzerland in 2011. All works are based on programs and images of Georg Nees´ doctoral thesis Generative Computergraphik. The students developed a series of interactive interpretations of his computer graphics.

Must see! Here´s the link »Processing Nees« and some screenshots:

 Recode:     The Precise Pleasures

Based on Frieder Nake´s early computer graphics, Nake and a group of his students developed the interactive installations »The Precise Pleasures«. A description and the edition of prints by the same name is already online at Pioneer Work: Frieder Nake, so here is only a short info on the new interpretation of Nake´s work:

 Newbie:      Alexander Hess

The mathematician Alexander Hess creates his algorithmic works of art by using his self-developed »tool-box«.
Here some images and links to his gallery website:
