Manfred Mohr, ‘P-512a_1’, 1996, bitforms gallery

"P-512a_1" (1996) is from Mohr's "Half Planes" phase (1995-1997) of work, which is based on the 6D hypercube. A random selection of two diagonal-paths from this alphabet of signs provides the building blocks for each work from this period. Here, the diagonal-paths are represented by thick white lines. The vector pairs which complete the quadrilaterals are represented by thin black lines, while the quadrilaterals are colored in grey to create the shape of the painting.

About Manfred Mohr

Influenced by his experience as a jazz musician and by German philosopher Max Bense’s theories on rational aesthetics, Manfred Mohr has been an innovator in the field of computer-generated art. To manipulate, for example, the myriad variations of the 11-dimension hypercube, Mohr created algorithms in FORTRAN programming language and printed them on flatbed plotters before the advent of laser printers. Mohr’s “Klangfarben” series (2008) features paintings and digital animation of brightly colored diagonal lines and intersecting planes against a flat black background.

German, b. 1938, Pforzheim, Germany
