In 1986, two art teachers from France introduced me to digital painting with actual
paint.
They presented their invention of a computer-driven robot with catheters connected to plasma
bags filled with the three primary colors and airbrushes.
This event took place at “Images du Futur”, Cité de l’Image, in Montreal.
I brought them two of my woven wool tapestries and, a floppy disk containing digitized
drawings I had made on my Apple IIe.
They transferred my drawings into their computer and directed the robot to paint them onto my tapestries.
