Geometrically inclined painter Manfred Mohr can easily shift from the world of three-dimensional cubic forms to six-dimensional hyper-cubes. The digital pioneer gives Daniel Durning the algorithmic lowdown on a system of computer-based art.
Best known for his geometric abstractions of 3-D and 6-D hyper-cubic constructions, Mohr discusses a practice that came out of his early experience as a jazz musician and inchoate computer artist in Paris during the 1960's. Mohr is currently exhibiting an early edition of his work, Scratch Code, at Bitforms Gallery in Chelsea through January 16, 2005.
