Art Space: CAS50

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Computer Arts Society (CAS) was estab-lished in the UK in 1968 by George Mallen, Alan Sutcliffe and John Lansdown and pio-neered the development of computer arts in the UK and worldwide. CAS was founded to encourage the creative use of computers and to allow the exchange of information in this area. It was recognized that this was an area where there had been increasing activity, but with little formal publication of methods and results and little communication between artists in different fields (music, visual, performing arts, for example). It is a community of interest for all those involved in doing, managing, inter-preting and understanding information tech-nology’s cultural potential. CAS is a Specialist Group of the ‘British Computer Society’ (BCS) – The Chartered Institute for IT. The society holds joint events with other BCS Specialist Groups and other professional groups and associations.
