Since the late 1990s, a “back to programming” movement in the production of digital artworks has been gaining momentum. Although the artist is no longer obliged to also be a programmer to be able to utilize computers, as was the case in the “pioneering days” of computer generated art in the 1960s and ’70s, writing one’s own code is becoming a contemporary way to assert a certain intellectual and creative independence...
By gathering a selection of texts, original and/or hitherto unpublished in French, this book placed under the direction of David-Olivier Lartigaud, seeks to analyze and to understand this new approach to the question of computer /art through a unique look at contemporary thinking in this domain. Art ++ is the first title of Script, the collection dedicated to digital culture published by Éditions HYX.
