‘In this groundbreaking book, Dominic McIver Lopes offers a rigorously argued, tightly formulated and highly original account of computer art. Rich in examples and brimming with insights, it will provide everyone interested in computer art with a deeper understanding and appreciation of this fascinating art form.’ - Berys Gaut, University of St. Andrews, UK
‘This book argues that computers provide a new medium for art, rather than simply being a new vehicle for displaying art. This raises a host of intriguing questions, forcing us to think again about what we thought we knew about art. Lopes is the ideal guide; being one of our leading philosophers of art, and also completely at home in the world of computing. This is a very good book which considers genuinely interesting issues in an accessible and enlightening way.’ – Derek Matravers, The Open University, UK
