VERA MOLNÁR (born 1924)
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. With each new work she slightly modified her algorithm to alter and build upon the one that came before it, producing a series of images that explored a range of possibilities.
