Description - A Computer in the Art Room by Catherine Mason

This is a thoroughly approachable review, following four years of research. The experiences of the pioneers in the use of computers in art have never been researched before and with the rarity of computers and the lack of access to them, the part played by art colleges was crucial. This is a book for artists, art students, academics and art historians - but it is also a well illustrated exposure of British social history.The book is aimed primarily at artists, students and academics. It features an original contribution to cultural knowledge, and documents previously unrecorded aspect of British arts education. The book is set out in a thorough but approachable manner.
