Frieder Nake has been producing pieces of digital art long before the screen was the output device of choice.
Not without good reason is he considered a pioneer of computer arts. He started exhibiting his work as early as 1965, being part of some of the first exhibitions on computer art ever held, including the famous Cybernetic Serendipity 1968 in London, and Biennale Venice 1970.
Since 1972, he has been a professor at the University of Bremen. His teaching and research is in computer graphics, human-computer interaction, hypertext, digital media, semiotics, aesthetics, and computer art, but also in the political and economical critique of computer science. He has been visiting researcher or professor in Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, China, and the USA.
