Peter Beyls is an interdisciplinary artist who’s been developing computer software as an artistic statement since the early 1970s. His work is situated in the broad field of Generative Art and constitutes a hybrid of drawings, films, interactive installations and audio-based work. The present publication provides an in-depth overview of his career spanning nearly four decades. Six well-known contributing scholars address a number of specific issues, ideas and methodologies underpinning his work. Beyls’ work is contextualised in terms of today’s artistic and scientific tendencies. Many illustrations provide evidence of a diverse yet coherent body of work.
