The three-year AHRC-funded CACHe project - Computer Arts, Contexts,
Histories, etc... - came to an end in September 2005. The project
focused on the early computer arts, from 1960-80 and especially on
activities in the United Kingdom. One outcome of this initiative
was the re-formation of the Computer Arts Society.
Paul Brown will talk about the background to the project, its aims,
objectives and outcomes - and
Dr. Nick Lambert will discuss and give the first public demonstration
of the project's key outcome - an online searchable multimedia database
of Early British Computers Arts that is based on the SSL Musims software
and which will shortly be available via the Arts and Humanities Data
This meeting is open to non-members. Please feel free to pass this
invitation on to interested associates/lists/etc...
