systems art, relationships in mathematics, science, and technology

Systems Art is a genre of art that emerged in the 1960s and 1970s, focusing on the creation of art as a complex interplay of systems and processes. Rather than emphasizing individual objects or compositions, systems art aims to explore the relationships, rules, and structures that govern interactions within a system. This art form often incorporates elements from mathematics, science, and technology, and may involve the use of algorithms, computer programming, and other systematic methods.

Artists like Manfred Mohr, Charles Csuri, and Georg Nees have made significant contributions to the field of systems art, particularly in the realm of computer-generated art.




Systems art offers a unique approach to artistic creation, focusing on the interplay of components within a system rather than individual elements. While it presents its own set of challenges, it also opens up new avenues for artistic exploration and interdisciplinary collaboration.
