Michèle Gauthier Carr-Brown – Personal comment

“For my master courses in Fine Arts, I have worked with Sonia Sheridan and Greg Gundlach, generative systems, Arts and Science. They exhibited their works in Exposition Electra 1983 at the Musée de la Ville de Paris, au Trocadéro, in 1983-84. [see Chirac link below.]

In the eighties, when I started advertising work in Paris, computing was not involved, except for the photo-composition of the text. Then, some guy walked into the Agency with a Paint Box, from Quantel.

I was the only one who spoke English and wanted to play with it ! Did I play! long hours until late at night, days after days… I burned my eyes on it… Later came Quark Xpress, for the text, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Brilliant experiences.” Michèle Gauthier Carr-Brown, Paris, 2019
