The Computer series was created at the very beginning of the computer era in 1967-69. Each letter of the alphabet was hand drawn and then plotted on a CalComp Plotter through the University of Minnesota’s computer lab—at that time this was an enormous room kept cool with powerful air-conditioning.
The CalComp plotter made a computer-generated print by moving a pen
across the surface of a piece of paper. These plotters could draw complex line art but were slow—however they offered a way to produce large line drawings when computer memory
was very expensive and processor power limited.
I gave the dimension for each letter to be reduced from the original drawn size down to a small point. I was then provided with one copy of the selected letters which I made multiple photostats of and created the word forms seen here: Magic, Peace, Zoom, Harmony, Everywhere is Nowhere is Everything Nothing.
