Notes
1965-66. These sketchbook drawings were made when Csuri first started using the computer. They demonstrate ideas and issues that he was struggling with in the context of a drum plotter, a slow computer and punch cards. Csuri asked himself, “What can I do with this process or approach that would be different from my traditional work?” According to Csuri, it was a time of great speculation. These drawings illustrate that he was thinking in terms of three-dimensional space, with some notion of stereo pairs and flying through a drawing. In the sketchbook, he comments about a three-dimensional path for an object, sine waves, and various transformations.

Artist's Comments
Now you see me now you don’t. The drawing is moving into and out of various spaces. The decisions about direction and speed were to be made by a random number generator. The camera angle was to be positioned so that it would look like the drawing was sliding over a three-dimensional surface and out of view.
