Coded: Art Enters The Computer Age 1952 - 1982 - Hardcover


  • This title explores how the rise of computer technology, together with its emergence in popular consciousness, impacted the making of art in the age of the mainframe. Examining the origins of digital art, 'Coded' features artists, writers, musicians, choreographers and filmmakers working directly with computers, algorithms and systems. These artworks reflect the wonder and alienation that was characteristic of the '60s and '70s. Today, 'Coded' appreciates culture in the age of the computer.
