Ernest Edmonds’ art explores colour, time and interaction in the context of colour field painting and systems art. His work extends the Constructivist tradition into the digital age through an investigation of mathematical and computational systems. Born in London in 1942, he has made artworks with reflected as well as transmitted light throughout his life, both painting and writing code to make interactive generative works. He has exhibited computer-based and systems art around the world since 1970, and showed the first computer-generated video at Exhibiting Space in 1985. He is Professor of Computation and Creative Media at the University of Technology, Sydney, Professor of Computational Art at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, and Editor-in-Chief of Transactions in the journal, Leonardo. His work is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, who collect his archives, and he is represented in the pioneer section of the on-line DAM Museum, Berlin.
