Manfred Mohr - Computer Graphics, Une Esthétique Programmée, ARC - Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris 1971

Demonstration Plot from show May 11 - June 6, 1971

During my show at the museum, I drew at the opening and every afternoon from 3-5pm with a Benson flatbed plotter demonstrating to the public how an automatic drawing machine works.
I worked of course offline - the information was preregistered on a magnetic tape - because at that time the technology did not yet allow me to work online, since a computer had to operate in an air conditioned environment and could not be transported to the museum.
Here is an example of what I was drawing at the museum:
