Description

signed, titled, and dated

computer used to program the image : a.i.70/71 (hybrid computer)

machine used to create the image: oscilloscope

 

They called these works “diffraction images”, which Beckmann recorded as Photographs.

For this image, a laser was directed onto a transparent card containing computer-generated information. In this way the diffraction images were produced on a screen positoned behind the card. Beckmann recorded those images using photography.
