Fifty years ago, Véra Molnar decided to experiment with computers for generating art printed on continuous plotter paper with the pin strips on the edge. To honor that anniversary, a number of galleries are showing her early work (protip: slow the video playback to 0.25 for longer looks at the work).

The affinity to concrete art and her ambition for systematization and reduction of sculptural means were thus disposed very early. During her studies of paintings and art history at the Academy of Budapest, Vera Molnar ultimately took to abstraction. Since 1946, her works have been both abstract and geometric. The representation of nature never interested her and when she tries to explain the true reasons of her choice, she says “the simplicity of these shapes still moves her and forever.”
Véra Molnar began to experiment the creative use of the algorithm and computer code to construct her works and make art in the late 60s. Fifty years after her first experiments in computational art, international interest in the history of this subject remains strong and at the same time almost uncovered.
Focusing on the relationship between computer programming, art and creativity, the presentation of Véra Molnar’s works at Volta NY 2018 explores the role of programming in her computer-based works from the 70s, looking at how her practice of geometrical abstraction painting in recent decades.

In 1985, HR Giger created a Japanese ad campaign for Pioneer’s Zone home audio system. Apparently the biomechanical masterpieces seen in these print and TV campaigns were originally created by Giger for Alejandro Jodorowsky’s never-made adaptation of Dune.
