THE STATE OF THE ART OF COMPUTER ART: PHASE TWO IN THE BEGINNING It was a great satisfaction to see the movement "back to art". In Phase One of computer art, a new art form arose naturally (but inevitably) as scientists used In Phase Two, computer art is taken from the computer. Phase One began with the exhibition output devices, and is an intermediate step beorganized by Jasia Reichardt titled "Cybernetic fore implantment in art media. Photography is Serendipity". The exhibition featured experiments often the means by which computer art output is in art and technology, in which scientists explored taken into silkscreening, etching, and lithovaried art forms and the computer. This happy graphy, Graphics explorations using overlays, accident was not an accident, for it was preceded Diazochrome acetates, photographic combinations, by the Bauhaus experiments in mathematics and art, etc. are but a few new experiments. and the artistic world was populated with prophets who sought, via mathematics, to find new art forms. But there will be other explorations-they These people found computers, and gave us a new are inevitable. And these new experiments, in art medium that is now implanted in many art forms. Phase Three will he in heuristic programming that is aesthetic in final form._ Thus far, the ideas In Phase One, a great many of the practitioners and programs are interesting, but generally the of computer art were scientists, mathematicians, output leaves very much to be desired.

The viewers agree also: become a common, accepted art form that many this new art looks more like art. It is a more people will enjoy and practice. Computer art mature art form. It is more pleasing.

"Aeleana," Serigraph hv M. Ilarbadillo, from the SDL Collection "Starting with these modules, I try to express myself as the poet does with words: hy combining them, or establishing relationships between them, so as to create a rhythmic pattern. Basically, my painting is a research on the problem of space, which in my work is an element hierarchically equal to form, like a complementary form or anti-form, in the same way that silence - pauses in music is a modulating element as important as sound, with form being neither one or the other, but the result of com binations between them. In my pictures, space, rather than being a neutral emelent a mere support for form is a participating one, and the paintings, better than of form and background are composed of positive modules (black nn white) and negative ones (white on black). This prin ciple of opposition: and opposites complementarity is essential in my work, where it is present from the level of independent modules to that of very complex compositions. I believe it to he a statement on the hipolari ty or dual nature of things, a notion antiquity held as the golden rule of the Universe. The computer has been a great help to me. Properly programmed it will produce a great number of designs to study and compare, to choose or to get a stimulus from. It has revealed compositional rules l had been using in my pictures without really being conscious of them and has allowed a great deal of systema tization in my research. Since I am more interested in speed than in perfection of drawing, I prefer a line printer with asterisks roughly filling in the shapes to a plotter. The final versions of my works I usually produce by hand.`* (Comments by the artist from the ICCH/Z correspondence with the editor.) (`O.iIIPU7`1;'R GR/XPIIICY and ART lor Ainy, 1976 U
