[SISEA 1990] Artist Statement: Hans Dehlinger – Cube 4 and other line drawings

Artist Statement

Line Drawings constitute a universe of their own. To draw lines is a most natural thing for an artist. The “resistance of the material” is for a hand drawn line very low, for a line drawn with a computer much higher. To realize an idea one has to write a program which then becomes the instrument for the generation of the drawing. One of the fascinating aspects of computer generated line drawings is the possibility to work with sequences and produce variations on a theme very easily. The lines are generated by a parameter-driven algorithm which draws on random processes.
