Shaping Space, Ernest Edmonds
Computer Art Pioneers on Making Art by Writing Code
Leila Johnston will chair a conversation between some of the most significant international computer art pioneers of the 1960s: Ernest Edmonds, Manfred Mohr, Frieder Nake and Roman Verostko.
Collectively these artists might be considered responsible for the development of art history from dada into digital. Coming to the computer from different tracks of constructivist, actionist and conceptual art, they began to re-plot the way art might be made, from creating drawing and plotting machines to using algorithms and code to construct their work.
