How to collect my art?


Frank Benkelmann - 01000010, a creative coder & generative artist from Germany. All my artwork is created with code.

The connection between me and the computer through code fascinates me. It's like a creative game of ping-pong, where the computer and I collaborate to produce unexpected and exciting results. Working with code allows me to tap into my creativity in unique ways. It's a thrilling process that never fails to inspire me.

I love working with a plotter. The process of plotting introduces a certain imperfection to the precision of the computer. This imperfection allows for a unique beauty to emerge. Each plot is one-of-a-kind, with its own signature created by the paper, pen, or brush used.

How it all started?

My passion for computers and technology started in 1985 with my first computer – a Commodore 64. At first a gimmick, later a vocation. Computers became important tools of 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.

Hic et nunc

In 2021, with the rise of Hic et nunc and NFTs, I rediscovered my love for creating, sharing and collecting art. The supportive and collaborative community within Hic et nunc 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 Twitter to find out what I'm working on right now.
