Summary

Helmar Frank, who studied under Max Bense and Abraham Moles, is a german mathematician and cyberneticist. He wrote a dissertation on Informationsästhetik – Grundlagenprobleme und erste Anwendung auf die mime pure [Information Aesthetics – Fundamental problems and initial application of the mime pure]. He founded the Institute of Cybernetics in Berlin and promotes the approach that computer can not produce art. He therefore attached great importance on calling the results of his working group aesthetical information and objects.
