Chance and Control: Art in the Age of Computers (2018) VERA MOLNÁR (born 1924) Interruptions Paris, 1969 Vera Molnár was one of the first women artists to create art with computers. The plotter drawings in her Interruptions series are among her earliest computer-generated images, made using an iterative process.
