  • Michael Kidner
Part of the Springer Series on Cultural Computing book series (SSCC)


This article presents the personal view of a painter with no training in the fields of science or technology. Nevertheless, in the course of a long career, he came to realize the inescapable value that the computer has to offer. For this he relies on the research of others for the raw materials of his project about patterns of space in the mind.
