John Whitney - Arabesque (1975)

Updated 1/9/2011:

John Whitney's pioneering work of computer animation, Arabesque, from 1975. This flowing, abstract short film is a wonder to behold, a work of art. Like many other computer graphics pioneers, this film suggests roots in psychedelics and spiritual quests as much as engineering and mathematics. Truly, a product of its age. I'll leave it for you to debate the merits of this theory.
