Lillian F. Schwartz is a pioneer in computer art - born in 1927, she is still making art on a computer to this day. On her Vimeo channel (which features a vast collection of her works from the 1970’s onwards), there are currently four new pieces.
Lillian Schwartz is best known for her pioneering work in the use of computers for what has since become known as computer-generated art and computer-aided art analysis, including graphics, film, video, animation, special effects, Virtual Reality and Multimedia. Her work was recognized for its aesthetic success and was the first in this medium to be acquired by The Museum of Modern Art. Her contributions in starting a new field of endeavor in the arts, art analysis, and the field of virtual reality have been recently awarded Computer-World Smithsonian Awards.
