Sine Curve Man (1967)
Prize winning entry for the 1967 Computer Art Contest.
made in collaboration with James Shaffer, Programmer, Ohio State University.
“A picture of a man was places in the memory of an IBM 7094. mathematical strategies were then applied to the original data. The X value remained constant, and a sine curve function was placed upon the Y value. Given the X and Y coordinates for each point, the figure was plotted from X’ = X, Y’ = Y + C * SIN (X) where C is increased for each succesive image.” [Csuri, 1967], [cf. Csuri and Shaffer, 1968]
