Color-In-Color

The first color copier in the world was introduced by 3M in 1968. β€œThe Color-in-Color,” which made use of THERMAL DYE TRANSFER technology, could produce a dry print in 30 seconds. The copier was used for a wide variety of applications, including the fields of advertising, engineering, graphic arts, textile design, and education. In 1970, Color-in-Color took a significant step into the area of fine arts when Professor Sonia Sheridan of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago structured a course around the Color-in-Color machine. She entitled the course β€˜GENERATIVE SYSTEMS.’ In this course she emphasized that the labor-free, instant character of this new medium will speed up the conceptual process for the artists and, coupled with other recent advances in electronic graphics, put them on a real-time basis.
