This big show has image stills from most of Geoff Davis‘s work from the MA1 “Abstract Originals” release, plus some from MA2 Various Unusual Events along with Martin Rootes MA3 release. There’s also a page from Geoff’s MA4 Story Generator. There are displays of the artefacts like data cassettes and deck, and the Micro Arts Magazine, along with a real time live run of the MA1 algorhythmic art, which means the 1980s code is actually running in the exhibition, providing ambient art, as intended. See the navigation here for more details of the MA releases, and the videos etc.

Lots of photos below, and more on a link at the bottom.

Plus two 8-bit micro controlled installations are in the exhibition, an interactive audio piece from Virtual Ground and a visual sculpture by Sean Clark, both of which used 8-bit micro controllers.
