Notes

First edition, first printing. Inscribed by Paul Konrad Hoenich "To Alto Meyer - with friendship - P. K. Hoenich, Haifa, 31. I. 63." One of the earliest publications on computer art. Prof. Emeritus Paul Konrad Hoenich (1907-1997), nicknamed PeKA, was born in Austria-Hungary and died in Haifa. PeKA studied at the Academies of Vienna, Florence and Paris. In 1935 he immigrated to Eretz Yisrael and settled in Haifa, where he established a teaching art studio. PeKA's works were exhibited throughout Israel and the entire world and, in their unique style, they make reference to the main artistic currents that were active in Europe in the 1930s - 1950s. In 1950, PeKA joined the Technion as a faculty member and taught courses in two-dimensional design, color theory and experimental art. During the years 1960 - 1980, he was engaged in the development of design ideas using sunrays. The gallery which is located at the center of the Technion's Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning in Haifa is named as the P. K. Hoenich Gallery of Experimental Art and Architecture.
