Casey Reas, is a Los Angeles-based artist and programmer who, as he describes himself, “writes software to explore conditional systems as art. Through defining emergent networks and layered instructions, he has defined a unique area of visual experience that builds upon concrete art, conceptual art, experimental animation, and drawing. While dynamic, generative software remains his core medium, work in variable media including prints, objects, installations, and performances materialize from his visual systems.” [1]
Reas holds a Bachelor of Science in Design from the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati (1996), as well as a Master of Science in Media Arts and Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2001). An associate professor at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea between 2001–03, Casey was appointed professor at the Department of Design Media Arts at University of California, Los Angeles, in 2003.

Next to private and public collections (among them: the Centre Georges Pompidou), Reas’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Europe, the United States, and Asia. Recent solo exhibitions include “Yes No” (Pasadena City College, 2014); “ULTRACONCENTRATED” (bitforms gallery, New York, 2013); “CENTURY” (Gallery [DAM]Berlin, 2012); and “Process” (BCA Center, Burlington, 2012). Among his numerous group exhibitions are, more recently, “//the ART_of_DATA” (Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, 2014, curated by Steven Sacks); “ArchiLab” (FRAC Centre, Orléans, France, 2013/14); “A New Sculpturalism” (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2013; collaboration with P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S and North Sails); “AI Plus” (National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, 2013; curated by Hui-Ching Hsieh HSIEH); and “Microwave International Media Art Festival” (Hong Kong, 2012).

Among his recent commissions are “Fragrant World” (in collaboration with Aranda\Lasch, Nick Gould, and Yoshi Sodeoka), live visual media and sculptures for the Yeasayer's 2012 tour, commissioned by The Creators Project; “Signals” (in collaboration with Ben Fry), a mural for building 76 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2011); “Chronograph” (in collaboration with Tal Rosner), a software mural for the Frank Gehry-designed home of the New World Symphony in Miami (2011); and “Whitney Museum Gala 2010,” a software installation for the Annual Gala by the Whitney Museum of American Art.
In 2001, together with data visualization expert and artist Ben Fry, Reas invented and launched “Processing,” which he describes as an “open source programming language and environment for the visual arts,” [2] and subsequently co-authored Processing: A Programming Handbook for Visual Designers and Artists (MIT Press, 2007/2014). With the second edition having been significantly updated and revised, both editions provide “a comprehensive reference and text for Processing (www.processing.org), an open-source programming language that can be used by students, artists, designers, architects, researchers, and anyone who wants to program images, animation, and interactivity.” [3]
