Csuri's wooden sculpture Numeric Milling is one of the few early computer sculptures created with a computer-driven milling machine.
Artist's Comments
Mathematical techniques were used to define the surface of a block. The program enabled me to alter the curvature on the sides of the block. I was able to experiment with elevations and the frequency of the curvature. Then computer plotter drawings were made for viewing. There was no monitor and graphics display capability.
