About
Paul Hertz works in digital and traditional media, with particular interest in intermedia, algorithmic composition, and performance. His interactive installations, performances, and digital prints have been exhibited at many international media conferences and festivals, including Siggraph, ISEA, the International Computer Music Conference, Digital Arts and Culture, and Upgrade! International.

Hertz’s early work developed while he lived in Spain, from 1971 to 1983. There he collaborated with musicians and theatrical performers and developed a generative system for intermedia art. Upon moving back to the United States, he earned an MFA in Time Arts at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he learned to work with computers as a Fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in Art and Technology.

Hertz was employed for seventeen years at Northwestern University as a software developer and an instructor in the Department of Radio, Television and Film and the School of Journalism. He was Co-Director of the Center for Art and Technology. He co-curated “Imaging by Numbers: A Historical View of the Computer Print,” which opened at the Block Museum, Northwestern University, in January 2008. He developed design and code for the Collaboratory Project, an online collaborative environment for K-12 education.

He currently teaches in the Department of Art History, Theory and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. A master digital printmaker, Hertz has recently started his own print studio, Ignotus Editions. He currently resides in Chicago, his home for over 25 years (Source: http://paulhertz.net).
