Catalogue Note

" Since my youth, fertilized by the Bauhaus idea, I had felt a strong attraction to linear and corpuscular structures. 1953 saw the beginning of my black and white "kinetic" period, during which these structures were widely developed. From then on I began thinking of the possibility of creating a binary plastic language that could be introduced into an electronic circuit."
The artist, "On a Computer Project", 1968, in Marcel Joray, Vasarely II, Neuchatel 1970, p. 198.
