Back in ’85 when Commodore released the Amiga 1000, they asked Andy Warhol to experiment with the computers’ imaging tools. He created a series of digital images, which was believed to be long lost. However, recently the Computer Club at Carnegie Mellon University rediscovered the imagery in the archives of The Andy Warhol Museum.
The group found 28 digital images that Warhol had saved to the system and application disks and created using the Amiga’s “pattern flood fills,” “palletized color,” and “copy-paste collage” tools.
Look for a short film highlighting the discovery of the pieces on the Hillman Photography Initiative website starting May 12th.
