He is coming from a literary and linguistic family
but though Primož is undeniably a person who lacks drawing talent,
his great passion is the other side of fine arts.
He became interested in computer programming because
he found good use of it while constructing lace patterns from
trigonometric and especially cyclometric functions around 1970.
Certainly it was not real art, but, sort of, computer generated images.
Computer he was using, an IBM 1130, did not have a screen so he could
only see the pictures his programs produced when printed on endless
paper of a line printer, as patterns of mainly asterisks. This work helped him land
his first job in the Computing Center of the Institute for
Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics, also in 1970.
Later, also early in the seventies, he generated random images from short lines, inspired by works of Piet Mondriaan. He also admired the works of Georges Seurat.
After the millenial change and increasing color and computational capabilities of personal computers he spent some time exploring the fractal compositions and, in 2013 with the advent of HTML 5 and its canvas tool, started to experiment with program generated images again.
From 2015 to 2017 he also delved into vector graphics.
