Computer artist exploring complexity
Lars Wander is a computer artist, born in Germany, and living in NYC. His visual artwork follows his interests in perception, generative patterns, and computational systems.
He’s been writing programs to explore complexity for well over a decade, and began publishing his generative artwork in 2020.
During the day, Lars works at Google writing visualization software to understand the dynamics of global-scale storage systems, his scientific research was published in IEEE, and at night he makes generative art.
“I think there’s a lot to be explored using a computer to push the creative boundaries in ways that you can’t when you’re not working with fantastical machines. So as much as possible, I try to bring the computer and the machinery to the forefront.”
