Manfred Mohr - Computer Graphics, Une Esthétique Programmée, ARC - Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris 1971

Wall Panel - Details

During the time of the show a large white panel was mounted in the exhibition hall at the Museum, a sort of guest book, where visitors could write whatever they wished to say. The panel consisted of sprocketed computer paper (77.5 centimeters by 281 centimeters) placed on a wooden board.
Now, seen so many years later, the result is a fantastic nostalgic reflection of people's thinking at that time. (Unfortunately a child blackened parts of the panel with a marker.)

The comments on the panel are in many different languages, even Einstein's energy/mass formula and Schroedinger's equation can be found on this panel.

The photos on these pages were taken from the original 1971 panel which was remounted for the show:
"Manfred Mohr 1964 - 2011, Réflexions sur une esthétique programmée" bitforms, New York, Sept. 2011
This was the first time the panel was shown since the 1971 show.

Subsequently the panel was shown at my show: The Algorithm of Manfred Mohr, ZKM | Media Museum, Karlsruhe, 2013 and at the Carroll/Fletcher Gallery, London, 2017

The panel is now on permanent loan at ZKM, Karlsruhe
