What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"A crucial moment: White Heat Cold Logic saves the memory of the 'heroic age' of early computer-based art in Britain at a time when its documentation is at risk of being dispersed. The result is an invaluable archive with personal and contextual stories, precise diagrams, and actual code lines of the technologies involved. Far from being nostalgic, this book is a resonant reminder that the basis for artistic media competence is inevitably founded on the creative mastering of techno-mathematical mechanisms. This book pushes the limits of our understanding of both 'art' and 'technology.'"—Wolfgang Ernst, Humboldt University,Berlin
