The images on these cards were created through collaboration of man and machine. Ivan Moscovich patented his Harmonograph device in 1967 and soon after his revolutionary approach to drawing was featured in an exhibition titled Cybernetic Serendipity at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. A ground-breaking visual artist, inventor and author, Moscovich's work attracted the attention of creative luminaries such as M.C. Escher and Frank Oppenheimer. Cybernetic playing cards are a curated exhibition of 54 unique Harmongrams printed on the face of each card.
