[ISEA2023] Paper: Camille Frémontier-Murphy — At the Sources of an Artistic Mutation towards Science: the First Years of the Journal Leonardo (1968-1981) as a Forum for the Pioneers of Digital Art


Short Paper, Theme: (Re)invented Alliances  Sub theme: Symbiotic Organizations

The Journal Leonardo was founded in 1968 by artist-engineer Frank Malina. Many pioneers of digital art joined the adventure. The growing group advocated a more conceptual approach to art, closer to the spectator, a new form of art rooted in Constructivism and in symbiosis with society’s mutation towards technology.
