    ROBERT MALLARY: Pioneer in Computer Arttraces the artist’s career from his early interest in art and technology in the 1940’s through his pioneering work with mainframe computers, vector graphics, and computer sculpture in the ’60s and early ’70s to his current collage work using a per-sonal computer system. The tape explores Mallary’s Concept of a “systems” approach to art in which he integrates the physical process of assemblage with the electronic process of computer graphics.
