Croatian Artist Donates Algorithmic Artwork to Department

Students and visitors to the east wing of EB2, the home of NC State’s Department of Computer Science, will notice many facilities-related enhancements made over the summer months. 

Most notable is the addition of a visually striking series of four limited edition prints donated to the department by Croatian artist, Dr. Vlatko Ceric

The prints have a distinctive connection with the computer science discipline as they represent an art form known as “algorithmic art”, or artwork generated by the execution of specific algorithms (or computer programs).  No image editing with software like Photoshop is done in any stage of image generation.

The donated prints are from Dr. Ceric’s “Cartesian Rhythm” series, and they are prominently located outside the classrooms on the main floor of EB2’s east wing, where they will be enjoyed by students, faculty, staff and visitors for years to come.
