"The future of Society: the way we communicate, learn and entertain ourselves lay in making pictures that move, images created by cameras and computers and displayed on a computer screen."
- John Whitney, 1959
By the late nineteen forties, John and his brother Jim Whitney had already set themselves to the task of building our New World of Interactive Multimedia. Thirty years before audiences would be titillated by the strange electronic sounds of the MOOG synthesizer or pass through the "psychedelic Star Gate" of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Whitney's were experimenting with "artificial" music, accompanied by abstract images they created with an analog camera control system. Together, they established the stepping stones across which subsequent generations have traveled to reach the summit; photo real Computer Generated Images.
