Art in Code by Holger Lippmann

Holger Lippmann wields code to render his art. He says his process is like improvising music without knowing what you will end up with.

I come pretty straight from visual art. started painting as teenager, did evening courses, studied at the Art Academy Dresden and did my diploma for sculpture. Then I was 2 years masterstudent, studied post graduat in Stuttgart, Paris and later moved to Brooklyn, New York, where I attended a first computer graphics internship at the institut of technology, NY..

When i came back to germany in 1994, i moved to berlin – the techno capital these days – and started pretty radically to work with computers (only), and passed another 1 year multimedia design education.

Anyway, deep inside i’m a painter and I always was. So I see my work best described in the traditional context of painting. The focus is on the development of an image and color composition.

It is like coming home and feeling full of an expression that, out of its own energy, is longing to become materialized. Even in that moment when I would start painting, I don’t have any direct image up on my inner screen. that wouldn’t be fun. Just like when you are pulled onto the dance floor by good music, it would be boring to know what happens next. I like to compare my work process to dancing or improvising music. It’s like the process of developing a finished composition throughout a performance or play. For me it is the way in which evolving form elements start organizing and – in the best case – combine to form a fascinating image.

I also included some of Lippman’s CNC Milling Concepts below. You can see much more on Holger Lippmann’s website. Thanks to @joshuahathaway for the heads up on this one.
