Контексте: Here we are living in a world of "identity crises," and most of us have no idea what an identity is.

„I was asking questions which nobody else had asked before, because nobody else had actually looked at certain structures.“

—  Benoît Mandelbrot Polish-born, French and American mathematician 1924 - 2010

Segment 8
Peoples Archive interview
Контексте: I was asking questions which nobody else had asked before, because nobody else had actually looked at certain structures. Therefore, as I will tell, the advent of the computer, not as a computer but as a drawing machine, was for me a major event in my life. That's why I was motivated to participate in the birth of computer graphics, because for me computer graphics was a way of extending my hand, extending it and being able to draw things which my hand by itself, and the hands of nobody else before, would not have been able to represent.
