Casey Reas

UCLA design and media arts professor Casey Reas’ work is currently on display at the Beall Center for Art and Technology at UC Irvine, as part of an exhibition “Drawn from a Score.” The exhibition runs through Feb. 3, 2018.

"Drawn from a Scorefeatures artists whose work emanates directly from a written, visual or code-based score. Ranging from event scores first developed by John Cage and Fluxus artists in the late 1950s to contemporary uses of code as a score for computational works, the exhibition includes drawings, sculptures, performances, video projections and computer-generated forms of art.

Some of the more contemporary works in this exhibition use computer generated or real-time animation in projections. Reas expands on Sol Lewitt’s instructions by writing computational scores to make infinitely mutable digital images on monitors.

Reas' software, prints, and installations have been featured in over one hundred solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. In 2001, Reas initiated Processing. Processing is an open source programming language and environment for the visual arts.
