Art by John F. SimonNew media artist, John F. Simon, Jr., will speak Thursday, August 23 at 5:30  p.m. at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, located downtown on  100 River Road S, Baton Rouge, LA 70802.

John F. Simon, Jr. is a new media artist who works with LCD screens and computer programming. In the 1990s, Simon began writing digital software to create visual imagery. His screen works display abstractions that vary infinitely due to random sequencing. The visual elements of each piece are generated in real time by his software. In addition to his screen work, Simon is also known for his Formica cutouts, drawings on paper and digital projections of his custom software.

Simon’s work is currently on exhibition at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum, June 30 through September 23, 2012.
