This is art one could mainframe
HONGKONG has its first taste of computer art with an exhibition by Ms Anne-Sarah Le Meur at Alliance Francaise.
Computer-generated art is a new phenomenon - a blending of the fundamentals of fine art, computing science and mathematics.
Ms Le Meur is a post-graduate student of Aesthetics, Sciences and Technologies of Arts at the University of Paris VIII. Her undergraduate studies were in mathematics.
Ms Le Meur created her works (pictured right) through the computer keyboard, ''writing'' the work with a program called ANYFLO-IKO, which was developed in France by artist Michel Bret. She uses a Silicon Graphics workstation as the hardware base.
The exhibition runs until March 25. Alliance Francaise is located on the 3/F, Java Commercial Centre, 128 Java Road, North Point.
