When the Machine Made Art : The Troubled History of Computer Art, Hardback Book

When the Machine Made Art : The Troubled History of Computer Art Hardback

Part of the International Texts in Critical Media Aesthetics series

Description

Considering how culturally indispensable digital technology is today, it is ironic that computer-generated art was attacked when it burst onto the scene in the early 1960s.

In fact, no other twentieth-century art form has elicited such a negative and hostile response.

When the Machine Made Art examines the cultural and critical response to computer art, or what we refer to today as digital art.

Tracing the heated debates between art and science, the societal anxiety over nascent computer technology, and the myths and philosophies surrounding digital computation, Taylor is able to identify the destabilizing forces that shape and eventually fragment the computer art movement.
