Abstract:

"Over many years Catherine Mason has been involved with computer arts and this, the result of four years research, puts the record straight regarding the part played by British artists. It is an amazing story and hard to comprehend that before the onset of personal computers, propriety software and the internet there was a real struggle for access which touched off an explosion of true British pioneering spirit." "Computer art can be described as "art created through the agency of a computer in which the computer operates simultaneously as medium, tool and context, in addition to its organizational and interactive elements" and it is important to bear this in mind as the reader considers the vagaries of comprehension by the establishment and the countering powerful support of the art colleges." "The book includes over 140 photographs, many not seen in print before."--Jacket.
