P-112

Basic Information

Title: P-112
Artist(s): Manfred Mohr
Date Created: 1972

Description

P-112, lady quark, 1972
Computer generated pen plotter drawing, ink on paper

Random points chosen within a circular area of each square are linearly transformed to each of square’s 4 sides and densely to its center point.

A work from this algorithm was one of my art pieces in the historic group show: New Tendencies 5, Zagreb 1973, and is in the collection: Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb. It was also shown in all the subsequent shows and reproduced in the catalogs and books about this show – including “A Little-Known Story about a Movement —“, edited by Margit Rosen @rosen_______ @zkmkarlsruhe and MIT Press Cambridge 2011. Most recent exhibition including this show: Hello World. Revising a Collection #hamburgerbahnhof Berlin 2018

A drawing from this algorithm is on the cover of my catalog Paris/Montreal 1974: http://emohr.com/paris-montreal-1974/index.html

Also published in “Computer Art in Perspective”, Computopia,Tokyo, 1973

signed and dated in graphite lower right “Works from Mohr’s Line Cluster phase (1989-1990) are based on the 5-dimensional hyper-cube, a structure built from a set of eighty lines. A subset of twenty lines, containing four lines from each “dimensional-direction” are chosen from this structure. Each “dimensional-direction” consists therefore of four parallel lines, represented by […]

image conceived: 1970 drawing on canvas: 1990 “Mohr’s work is an important bridge between handmade manipulations and machine-calculated structures in art. Following a series of geometric experiments, a shift toward hard-edge painting by 1967 immediately preceded Mohr’s use of the computer as a tool for art. In this period of work, his fascination with modern […]

“The P-2400 series is based on the 1978 algorithm from the work phase Dimensions I. The first version of this alogrithm did not include the possibility of rotating the four-dimensional hypercube. In 2017, Mohr pursued this original code and directed the algorithm into a different visual solution. Again, the basic 32 lines which constitute the […]
