How to collect my art?


Frank Benkelmann - 01000010. I'm a german creative coder and generative artist who crafts all of my artwork through code.

I'm fascinated by the interactive relationship I have with the computer through coding. It's like a dynamic game of ping-pong, where we collaborate to create unexpected and exciting outcomes. This process taps into my creativity and never ceases to inspire me.

I love using a plotter because it adds a unique imperfection to computerized precision. Each plot becomes one-of-a-kind, influenced by the specific paper, pen, or brush used.

How it all started?

My journey into the world of computers kicked off in 1985 with a Commodore 64. What started as a toy soon turned into a career path, as computers became the canvas for my creativity.

My first contact with generative art was in the early 2000s. Back then I did a lot of coding in ActionScript (Macromedia/Adobe Flash) – it was a heck of a good time.

Tezos community

In 2021, with the rise of Hic et nunc, I rediscovered my love for creating, sharing and collecting art. The supportive and collaborative Tezos art community reminded me of the early days of Flash, when there was a sense of connection and excitement among artists and creators. I am grateful to have found my passion for art again and to be a part of this vibrant and inspiring community.

I now create my artwork using Javascript, Processing and P5.js. Follow me on X (twitter) to find out what I'm working on right now.
