How astonishing that the pioneers of computer, digital, algorithmic, programming, and mash-up art are largely unknown at the very moment when the computer, or more specifically its handheld, lap bound, or otherwise omnipresent progeny are transforming virtually every aspect of existence! I read this, fascinated by the continued relevance of the artists (and their disputes) and delighted to know that finally, with this publication, there exists a portrait of an evolving movement that has worked assiduously at the boundaries of the art world for fifty years. --Hannah B Higgins, Professor of Art History, University of Illinois Chicago, USA
Although computer-generated art was largely ignored by the art establishment in the 1960s and 70s, it's now viewed in a very different light. Grant Taylor's book provides an excellent - and much needed -overview of the beginnings of digital art and design. --Douglas Dodds, Senior Curator, Victoria and Albert Museum, UK
By questioning the reasons for which art critics, artists and curators rejected computer-generated artefacts during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, Grant Taylor makes a significant contribution to the historiography of 20th century culture. --Margit Rosen, Researcher and Curator, ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Germany

When the Machine Made Art is an excellent overview of the largely ignored history of computer-generated art. The book covers a range of well-informed, intelligent analysis of the subject. It is a must read for anyone with an interest in contemporary art and its most recent developments. The book could also be considered as a useful classroom text and a source for research, with an excellent reference section.
