    The Fortieth Anniversary of Event One at the Royal College of Art

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2009)

    London, UK, 6 - 8 July 2009


    Catherine Mason


    Event One was the first major public activity of the Computer Arts Society (CAS) founded in 1969 "to promote the creative use of computers in the arts". Now celebrating its fortieth year, this paper will examine the concepts behind the aims and objectives of CAS through this exhibition staged in March 1969 at the Royal College of Art. Participants from the realms of fine art and computer programming, among others offered a range of visitor experiences from graphics to live performance. Event One heralded the collaborative, cross-disciplinary nature of working which came to signify the early period of media arts.
