Nees Georg Wikipedia.
Nees began programming computers in 1959. Circa 1965, while
working at Siemens in Erlangen, Germany, he began writing
programs in Algol that used random number generators to
generate drawings automatically by controlling a Graphomat
Z64, a primitive flat-bed pen plotter designed by Konrad
Zuse. In order to create this art, Nees also wrote some of
the world's first graphics libraries, packages named G1,
G2, and G3. Nees intervened manually in the production of
the artwork by determining when the image was complete.
Another piece, variously called "Schotter",
"Gravel Stones", or "Cubic Disarray"
and created by Nees between 1968 and 1971, depicts a
transition from order to chaos: a regular grid of
evenly-spaced squares at the top of the image is randomly
turned and displaced until, at the bottom of the image, the
grid is completely disrupted Nees's artwork
"Sculpture" (1968) was one of the world's first
computer-generated sculptures; it was exhibited at the 1969
