Peter Ciuha, Waves, 1997, computer print; recipient of the Special Recognition, 21th International Biennial of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, 1995.

The exhibition included four computer prints made in 1997. Slovenian artist Peter Ciuha was the first to receive a special acknowledgement of the international jury for computer graphics. For the exhibition, he prepared four new works in larger formats made by using a computer and a large-format plotter. A computer is a tool with which the artist discovers structures calculated with a fractal formula, structures that are actually sets of numbers. By assigning colours to the numbers, the structures become visible. The artist’s role is to select a graphically interesting composition, to freely colour it and transfer it to paper with a computer printer.
