Serendipity was certainly a high time.

Is there any kind of synthesis of the artists interviews (or formal declarations) in the Educational Committee pages ?

Good initative. Perhaps a small but vital correction would be to incluse the cybernetic serendipity exhibition!!! Various other sites have information that could enhance the quality. DAM gallery and Bremen, for example. How about drawing on the White Noise MIT book and A Compuer in the Art Room by Catherine Mason?

Thank you for finding the error, I corrected it!

I will propose posting a link to the committee.

On the History.... list, I think there is a typo for Jean-Pierre Hébert (the founder of Algorists group), and not Hérbert.

Certainly. I'll soon make additions in diccan wit links on this URL.
When that will be done, I would very much like a link from your site onto diccan.

On the eduction site we have "The History of Computer Graphics and Digital Art Project" (the URL may change soon as we an updated site is almost ready to launch) - maybe of interest to you, Pierre?

My first name is Pierre. Normally, my file has been completed. Sorry.

I certainly cover virtual reality (and am a regular speaker at Laval Virtual).

But I am certainly not complete. Your are not yet listed in my dictionary, but I intend to fix that today.

Can't wait til I have time to properly peruse your work BERGER (do you not have a first name?)  Do you also cover immersive art such as virtual reality and virtual world installations?

Happy to join the group.

I have written a history of digital art, online at!Index.html
But the field is vast, and I hope to discover a lot here (including detection of errors in my text.
