Profile of Rebecca Allen, Kraftwerk's Original 3D Artist

One could argue that Kraftwerk's image as a band was every bit as important to their aesthetic as their music.  Rebecca Allen was a big part of helping to cultivate their futuristic image with her ground-breaking 3D images and videos.  Check out this interesting profile of her work with Kraftwerk on Wired! [Thanks to Isaac for bringing this to my attention.]

Nice piece on Rebecca Allen. I was in her classes at UCLA in the late-80s. She had us doing music videos in MS-DOS sprite animation software on 286 computers, pushing us to do our best despite the technical limitations of the time.
