About the publication
John Maeda is a pioneer of digital graphic design and one of the greatest designer, teacher, and artist in the digital field of our time. Marrying art and science with great genius, he imagines a new, deeper, more human link with computers.
The catalog of the exhibition John Maeda, Nature, presented at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2005, reveals a series of previously unseen works founded on a humanist conception of the computer tool. As an advocate of a sensitive, instinctive approach to technology, John Maeda portrays the digital space in the spirit of a landscape painting. Realized with a new technology which he invents “to paint in space and time,” his “digital landscapes” pave the way for the post-digital era.
