A random sequence ofpoints is chosen, then each point moves towards the next one in a loop. Quickly a rotating string of points forms, often in a figure of eight pattern. The string winds tighter, spins faster, and converges on the centre of gravity of the original formation. [video] [more] [code]

Manfred Mohr is considered a pioneer of digital art. After discovering Prof. Max Bense’s information aesthetics in the early 1960’s, Mohr’s artistic thinking was radically changed. Within a few years, his art transformed from abstract expressionism to computer generated algorithmic geometry. Encouraged by the computer music composer Pierre Barbaud whom he met in 1967, Mohr programmed his first computer drawings in 1969.
