Event Two Documentation

Posted: Sun, 04 Aug 2019 20:20

Event Two Documentation

Event Two at the Royal College of Art took place between 12th and 17th July 2019 and was a great success. Every evening event was fully booked and day visitors numbered many hundreds. We are still sorting for through the documentation gathered at the event but have managed to sort through the first set of photographs. You can find around 350 in an album on Flickr. Additionally, there are pictures of the install, plus videos, 3D photographs and 360 panoramas on the Event Two web page.

An updated version of The CAS50 Collection is currently in production. This will contain information about the 24 artists in the collection, plus a selection of photographs from the various exhibitions, including Event Two, that have happened so far as part of the CAS50 programme.

You can pre-order the catalogue from Etsy

Video Interviews

At Event Two this week we officially launched our new series of video interviews conducted by David Upton. David visited artists, curators to discuss their interests in computer art and has produced a unique series, with many unique insights into how computer artists make their work, and curators contextualise it. The first videos are now live on YouTube and feature Andy Lomas, Bob Bicknell Knight, Ernest Edmonds, Fabio Lattanzi Antinori, Genetic Moo, George Mallen, Irini Papadimitriou, Jonathan Kearney, Julia Freeman, Keith Watson, Patrick Tresset and Paul Brown. A new series is currently in the planning stage.

Cybernetic Serendipity: The Computer and the Arts

Posted: Sun, 12 Aug 2018 17:14

Cybernetic Serendipity: The Computer and the Arts

In July 1968, a special issue of Studio International was published, Cybernetic Serendipity: The Computer and the Arts, which was realised in relation to the Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition held at London's Institute of Contemporary Art from August to October of the same year. The show drew attention to the inventive ways that artists, scientists and technology experts were working together to make computer-generated graphics, animations and music, as well as cybernetic machines and environments. The idea was that artistic forms could be, and were, spawned by technology. The exhibition was curated by Jasia Reichardt, in collaboration with Mark Dowson (technological adviser) and Peter Schmidt (musical adviser) and designed by Franciszka Themerson.

To mark the 50th anniversary of this pioneering publication and exhibition, Cybernetic Serendipity: The Computer and the Arts has been reprinted and is available to purchase.

Writing New Codes: Cordeiro / Mallary / Molnár

Writing New Codes is an exhibition of work by computer art pioneers Waldemar Cordeiro, Robert Mallary and Vera Molnár. It is currently at the Mayor Gallery in Cork St, London. The gallery has generously given us a PDF copy of the exhibition catalogue to add to our archive which can be found in the Exhibitions and Events section. The exhibition runs until 27th July 2018 so you only have a couple or weeks to see the works. It's well worth a visit (perhaps combine it with a visit to Chance and Control at the V&A?).

CAS50 Exhibition in Leicester Opening

The CAS50 year officially began on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 with the opening of the CAS50 Exhibition in Leicester.

Attendees of the launch were treated to an evening of talks by many of the artists involved in the exhibition, together with introductions by CAS co-founder George Mallen and current chair Nick Lambert.

As well as marking the start of the CAS50 year, the exhibition also announced the CAS50 Collection project. This aims to use the interest in CAS50 to help build a curated collection of high-quality computer artworks that we hope will become an important resource for people interested in computer art.

Pictures from the opening can be found here and panoramic images here. A video of the talks is available on our YouTube Channel.

PAGE Archive Completed

Posted: Sat, 17 Mar 2018 20:08

PAGE Archive Completed

We are very pleased to announce that we have completed our online archive of the Computer Arts Society's PAGE bulletin. First published in 1969, PAGE provides a unique insight into the development of computer arts in the UK and beyond. The processes of digitising PAGE began during the CACHe project but this is the first time that a complete collection of all known issues of PAGE has been published online in PDF format.

We are working to ensure that all of the PAGE PDFs are fully index by Google. Well over half of them have been so far and you can keyword search them using our new CAS website search. We hope that the remainder of the issues will be indexed soon.

This is the first outcome of the CAS50 programme. This will see a series of celebratory events, archiving activities and a limited edition paper re-publication of the early issues of PAGE. CAS50 will run from summer 2018 until summer 2019.
