Micro Arts was founded, run and programmed in 1984 by Geoff Davis, along with a diverse group of young artists and programmers. In the mid-1980s it released computer-generated art, conceptual pieces and story generators on data cassettes and Prestel TV Teletext, and provided a forum for computer artists and musicians. Micro-computers were newly available at low cost and led to a radical change in the use and consumption of computer graphics and computer-controlled systems.
The Computer Arts Archive is working with Geoff to help document, contextualise and publicise his pioneering art project and to expand the collection to include other 1980s micro-computer artworks.
