London, April 25: Lost computer art work of American artist Andy Warhol has been recovered from 30-year-old Amiga disks.
The discovery was made by Carnegie Mellon University’s computer club over a period of three years since the images were saved in an obscure data format, the BBC reported.
Warhol, who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art, had produced the art in 1985 for the creator of the Amiga computer to aid the launch of the Amiga 1000.
The project’s leader and self-confessed Warhol fanatic Cory Arcangel said in a statement that what’s amazing is that by looking at the images, they can see how quickly Warhol seemed to intuit the essence of what it meant to express oneself, in what then was a brand-new medium: the digital. (ANI)
