Casey Reas: Process

March 9, 2012 - April 28, 2012

In this exhibition acclaimed software artist Casey Reas used computer algorithms to create complex, organic abstractions. In his ongoing series Process, Reas explored the relationship between synthetic and naturally-evolved systems through strikingly beautiful prints, animations, architectural wall fabrics, relief sculpture and interactive works all derived from variations on the same fundamental software algorithm. Reas was also internationally recognized as co-creator of Processing, an open source programming language specifically for visual artists, a standard for artists creating images, animation and interactive art. Reas was a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles and has exhibited throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Reas was in residence in Burlington from March 21-23 working with local artists in algorithmic art.
