Computers and Art provides insightful perspectives on the use of the computer as a tool for artists. The approaches taken vary from its historical, philosophical and practical implications to the use of computer technology in art practice. The contributors include an art critic, an educator, a practising artist and a researcher. Mealing looks at the potential for future developments in the field, looking at both the artistic and the computational aspects of the field.
