Ones and Zeroes

Computer art oscillates between a fascination with the new digital world and a critique of the living conditions it creates. Artists use computers as a tool for producing new forms of art. Drawings and series of images originate with the aid of algorithms and programmes that are often interactive or based on the processing of information. At the same time, transformations and working in series are aesthetic principles of a programmed art. However, what becomes apparent is that a digitally influenced reality has changed humans, and that computers also unmistakably alter their self-image.
