From less known works of East European artists to early experiments of John Lasseter (Pixar) the program of the evening will be divided into several short chapters discussing different tendencies in the artistic and technological evolution of computer animation such as: digital image manipulation, generative art and 3D entertainment. Works of artists like Karl Sims, David Rokeby or Támas Waliczky will illustrate various intentions behind electronic art and general expectations from digital revolution in a socio-cultural, technological and political context of the 80”s and 90”s.
