When artists began to explore computers as a medium in the fifties, technology was limited and the resulting minimalism in expression was a necessity. Half a century later, the sight of a green cathode ray tube display, that once was the promise of an exciting future, carries with it a mixed sense of nostalgia and novelty.
The project CBM 8032 AV is a digital artwork, stable and entirely self-contained, and therefore timeless. It allows us to focus entirely on the interaction between a reduced technical structure and the artistic ideas that emerge in a dialogue with its limitations.
