Henry in print! Posted: 18 October 2018

Crowther, Paul (2018) Digital Art, Aesthetic Creation: the birth of a medium, Routledge, pp.20-35.


Professor Crowther uses a philosophical approach to argue that art created by computers is really art. He dedicates the first chapter of this publication to Desmond Paul Henry. This represents the first in depth evaluation of Henry’s contribution to Computer Art.


“Henry remains a visionary independent who anticipates the ubiquity of technological being in the Postmodernism age.” (Crowther, 2018, p.35)
