So amazing! The Archives of American Art just shared these IBM punch cards utilized by Frederick Hammersley to create computer drawings in 1969, during his time teaching at the University of New Mexico.
We will be mounting an exhibition of Hammersley’s computer drawings from this time period, opening on January 17 — just a few weeks away!
An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, which includes foreword by Elizabeth East, original text by Frederick Hammersley (first published by Leonardo magazine in 1969), as well as over 20 computer drawings reproduced.
