Historical Significance
Csuri’s early computer art is comprised entirely of line drawings, due to technological constraints. In this early period, he sought ways to achieve contrast and dimensionality by investigating the relationship between these two-dimensional objects. In Bearded Man in a Circle, Csuri explored the possibility of creating texture and pattern by replicating and overlapping his drawing of a bearded man. Bearded Man in a Circle also demonstrates Csuri’s interest in object transformation. The simple drawing of a bearded man is transformed into a new aesthetic object that is circular in form and outwardly radiates. The new object entirely masks its source form, with the exception of two faces that emerge from the bottom left of the circle.
