Sarasota’s renowned scientist and artist, Ken Knowlton, has exhibited at the Museum of Modern in New York, and in March 2018, was featured as a "groundbreaking artist" in its Monday Evening Series. At MOMA, Ken talked to a sold-out audience about his art practice over the years.
After earning his PhD. in Computer Science at MIT, his fascinating career began at Bell Labs. He has been a designer and developer of computer techniques and languages for graphics and art, and has won numerous prizes. His art has been used for magazine and book covers and featured in over a hundred magazines and newspapers.
Ken made history developing the first computer language for bitmap movie making and has been called the inventor of the pixel. Knowlton’s artwork consists mostly of computer-assisted mosaic portraits. Seen from afar they are portraits, but at close range each is a vast array of seashells, dominoes, pottery shards, puzzle pieces or other small objects.
His work is exhibited September 16 - October 31, 2019 at the Center for Arts and Humanities, 1226 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
