Lillian Schwartz

Legendary artist Lillian Schwartz is best known for her pioneering work with computers and what since has become known as computer-generated art and computer-aided art analysis, including film, video, animation, special effects, graphics, and virtual reality. This presentation is a program of 10 short films, all shown on 16mm, from Ms. Schwartz's early days at Bell Laboratories (circa 1970 –1975) where she experimented with the amalgam of image and sound. Her films can be viewed in 3D, as well (glasses provided). Also included is a short documentary about her called, The Artist and the Computer. The special night concludes with a Q&A session with Ms. Schwartz via Skype. (program approx. 90 min)
