Re: <nettime> History of Computer Art, chap. V


my reply was in no way meant to be a "critique" of the whole project as John Hopkins wrongly insinuated. It is just a critique of the title which projects a false universal. The work as a whole, I stick to my first line, it is laudable, more than that, a great project, and good that you make it accessible online. I would love to contribute to a more polyphonous history of computer arts, but that remains a matter of funding, as my capacity for free labour is limited and already taken up by writing projects of my own.

continue the good work

The online publication allows to develop the project as an open project
(updates possible). This history describes early works, not the context
of computer art in different countries. Relevant for the works included
were the informations I was able to gather about their technology
because otherwise I can?t describe the computing processes. So I updated
my description of James Seawrights installations "Electronic Peristyle"
(1968) and "Network III" (1971) with the informations the artist sent to
me via e-mail (see chap. II.3.3).
