B orn in 1934 in Voghera, Italy, Aldo Giorgini trained with the Italian futuristic painter-sculptor Ambrogio Casati. Giorgini obtained a PhD in mechanical engineering from the Polytechnic School of Turin before moving to the United States, where he obtained a second PhD in civil engineering at Colorado State University. He accepted a teaching position at the School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, where he settled permanently in 1968. His first works were generated on Purdue University's mainframe computer (CDC) and printed on large Mylar sheets using Calcomp printers. He hand-inked the works of art to complement the works he called examples of "computer-assisted art ." His works figure in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution and the Carnegie-Mellon Art Museum. Aldo Giorgini died in Indianapolis in 1994.
