SIGGRAPH 1989: Art Show



Boston, Massachusetts


July 31st-August 4, 1989


I welcome you to the SIGGRAPH ’89 Art Show on behalf of the SIGGRAPH ’89 conference committee.

This year’s show is the result of strong international response to SIGGRAPH’s call for computer art.  Jurors from Austria, Canada and the United States selected 80 pieces from a much larger group of entries. The works represent a broad range of styles and techniques and include two-dimensional works, sculptures, books, interactive installations and videotapes.

The essays included in this catalog consider the question of the context of computer art today. The authors hold a wide range of views and grapple with notions of computers and art from a broad perspective. Questions of the context of computer art remain.

The computer art community is a vital community, with varied interests, opinions and visions. I am pleased and excited to share works by members of this community. I thank all who have participated by volunteering labor, essays or artworks. Their contributions make the show.  Once again, welcome to the SIGGRAPH ’89 Art Show.
