Cohen trained as a painter and represented Britain at the 1966 Venice Biennale. In 1968 he became a visiting professor at the University of California at San Diego, where he was introduced to computer programming. In 1971 Cohen took up a post as visiting scholar in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Stanford University. This screenprint consists of a series of computer-generated lines, with Letraset lettering applied by the artist. Cohen uses his own artistic logic to identify and connect the different paths, demonstrating his early interest in the new medium of the computer.
