Kolomyjec was one of the first computer artists who, through his work, firmly related to and studied the pioneers of computer art. He studied at the Michigan State University in East Lansing Michigan and, as one of the first, graduated in the subject of “Computer Art”.

He ascribed to Computer Art a role that would shape society, which would span the chasm between art and culture on the one hand and science and technology on the other. He foresaw the computer as the ultimate creative tool for the artist-technician-scientist.
