Lost Warhol Digital Works Found on Floppy Disks
A computer club at Carnegie Mellon University has found 28 digital images created by Andy Warhol for Amiga Computers in 1985 and stored on floppy disks. Warhol was reportedly one of the artists hired to demonstrate the graphic capabilities of the Amiga 1000 personal computer.
According to Creative Review, some pieces are clearly signature Warhol while others are almost nothing like the artist’s well-known work.
A short film detailing the findings of the computer club called Trapped: Andy Warhol’s Amiga Experiments will be premiering university’s Carnegie Library Lecture Hall in Pittsburgh on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m. before appearing online at nowseethis.org on May 12. This will definitely be a cooler doc to watch than your average Netflix stream-of-choice, so save the date. Below are the art pieces published online so far along with.
