Herbert W. Franke
Munich, Bavaria
Professor Herbert W. Franke has already started to generate works of art using computers in the Fifties. A physics PhD, he was fascinated by the possibilities of machine-supported graphical creation.
At the same time he gave much attention, right from the start, to aspects of information and reception theory that are relevant in the borderland of art and science.
This is how he made an important scientific contribution to the understanding of the aesthetic mechanisms.
In addition, Mr. Franke ranges among the most renowned German-speaking authors of utopian literature and has acquired great merits in the field of cave and karst exploration.
