> ABOUT THE ARTIST: Harold Cohen (born in London on May 1, 1928) is a listed and established British artist who became the director of the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts at the University of California, San Diego. He is the celebrated author of the AARON program, which uses artificial intelligence to enable a device to create original works of art. AARON-generated art has been exhibited worldwide, including at London's Tate Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum and many more of the world's major art spaces. They have also been shown at a dozen science centers, including the Ontario Science Center, the Boston Science Museum and the Los Angeles Museum of Science and Industry. Cohen represented the US in the World Fair in Tsukuba, Japan, in 1985.
One of the few artists ever to have become deeply involved in artificial intelligence, Cohen has given invited papers on his work at major international conferences on AI, computer graphics and art technologies. His work is widely cited in the literature, and it is the subject of Pamela McCorduck's AARON's CODE: Meta-Art, Artificial Intelligence, and the Work of Harold Cohen (Freeman).
