He is considered one of the pioneers of interactive art. Beginning with the expanded cinema and performance works in the 60's, his multimedia projects in the 70's included Genesis stage shows and virtual reality precursors. In the 80's and 90's his work has focused on interactive computer based installations. For example, The Legible City (1989) and The Virtual Museum (1991). Since 1991, he has been the founding director at the (Karlsruhe-based media museum Zentrum fuer Kunst und Medientechnologie) or ZKM/ Institution of Visual Art located in Karlsruhe, Germany. I feel that this is more of a modern abstract type of art in the computer and technological world.
*The picture above has all the aspects in which I think embody his art but that just my personal opinion, what do you think?
