"A CONVERSATION ON GORDON PASK AND ARTSTATION" (APRIL 2008/9)
GONÇALO FURTADO and GLENN DAVIDSON
Abstract by GF: As I referred in previous writings: “Pask influence to computer interactive arts (a field firmly established at the 1984 Venice Biennale), goes back to his impactful contribution to Cybernetics Serendipity, and it extends for instance to Artstation’s work"... Artstation acknowledged in a 1993 festschrift the relevance of Pask’s understanding of art as a creative process of potentialities and his contribution to their work... The present conversation of myself and Artstation, concentrates on their memories and relationship with second-order cyberneticist Gordon Pask.
* Out of curiosity, the aforementioned large festschrift for Pask was edited by Glanville in 1993, to mark Pask’s retirement date. It included texts of varying lengths expressing the diversity of fields touched on by Pask.
