Description

Yoshiyuki Abe uses geometric objects and stochastic processes to create his often colorful and chaotic “algorithmic visual art”. He earned his B.E. in Photographic Engineering at Chiba University in Japan, then his M.A.Sc., before beginning freelance work as a director and sound recording engineer on films. In the early ’90s, he began producing inkjet prints in series, which ranged in character from black and white images to kaleidoscopic color productions generated by ray tracing light sources.

Abe has shown his work at numerous international electronic arts exhibitions over the decades, and also writes extensively on digital art and technology. He has established himself as one of the best informed artist-authors of the algorithmic and electronic art scene in Japan.

“For artists who want to create mathematical art through algorithm-driven parameter control, the essential element for success is artistic serendipity. This is the interesting fact of art in the perfect mathematical space.” – (Artist statement on Geometrica series)
