Abstract

Ernest Edmonds has pioneered the field of computational art and contributed to the broader field of contemporary art from the late 1960s to the present. Francesca Franco is a Venetian-born art historian based in the UK whose research focuses on the history of art and technology. The central theme of her research is the history of art and technology and the pioneers of computer art. This interview with Edmonds, conducted by Franco in 2016, explores how Systems art, Systems Theory, and his personal relationships with artists such as Malcolm Hughes, Kenneth Martin and Edward Ihnatowicz influenced his art practice
