"When I paint, I'm no brush-artist, when I make print something out of the computer, I'm no computer-artist. VERA MOLNAR, one of the pioneers of digital art, invented in 1959 her machine imaginaire and more than ever she deals nowadays with the empirical aesthetics. The computer helps her to realize faster many variants and random structures digitally produced seem to be better than hand made samples. Long before the first digitally produced pictures, VERA MOLNAR developed already in 1959 her concept with which she created pictures following her own conceived algorithms: "I imagined having a computer. I designed a programme and then, step by step, I realized simple, limited series, which were self-contained, thus no single combination of form was missing." With this concept of the machine imaginaire VERA MOLNAR, as one of the first artists, laid the foundation stone of a firm artistic occupation with the computer.
