Generative Systems, 1970s visionary art program, is revealed through colorful images showing how youthful, imaginative artists created images and sounds with electronic equipment originally intended for business. Four insightful articles set the context. This book is intended for museum and university art educators, but it is equally stimulating for college and high school-level art, science, and techlogy students.
