last name: Abe

Yoshiyuki Abe studied Photographic Engineering at Chiba University in Japan. From optical/chemical to computing was his imaging paradigm shift in the early 1980s. In his image works, he uses geometric objects, mostly second order algebraic surfaces (hyperbolic paraboloids), and the processing of stochastic elements.
Since the 1980s, his work has been shown at international electronic arts exhibitions. He writes extensively about digital art and technology. He has established himself as one of the best informed artist-authors of the algorithmic and electronic art scene in Japan.
His interests have shifted from analog images and film to algorithmic art and stochastic processes.

I wanted to get in touch with you because I stopped my activity last year and as there is couple of printed works you sent to me years ago, I wish to return you. Would you please send me your adress to ship them back. Best regards, Claude
