Computer Art at the Victoria and Albert Museum

"The V&A has been collecting computer–generated art and design since the 1960s. More recently, the Museum acquired two significant collections of computer–generated art and design, and together these form the basis of the UK's emerging national collection of Computer Art.

The Museum's holdings range from early experiments with analogue computers and mechanical devices, to examples of contemporary software–based practices that produce digital prints and computer–generated drawings. The earliest work in the collection dates from 1952 and is a long exposure photograph of electronic beams on an analogue computer, by artist Ben Laposky.

More recently, the V&A has acquired a large digital inkjet print from 2008, which is nearly two metres long and was created using pixel mapping software designed by American artist Mark Wilson.

The collection consists predominately of two–dimensional works on paper, such as plotter drawings, screenprints, inkjet prints, laser prints and photographs, as well as artists' books, from around the world. Early practitioners of computer art were working in Britain, France, Germany, and Spain, as well as the United States, Japan and South America."

Ben Laposky: Electronic Oscilloscope Imagery

Digital Art Museum
[Ben Laposky's] electronic oscilloscope imagery was produced by manipulated electronic beams displayed across the fluorescent face of an oscilloscope's cathode–ray tube and then recorded onto high–speed film. He called his oscillographic artworks 'oscillons' and 'electronic abstractions'. The mathematical curves that were created by this method were similar to the lissajous wave form.

Ben Laposky was a computer art pioneer that created some of the first graphic images generated by an electronic (analogue) machine.
