First issue of the new computational arts magazine put together by the team behind Creative Applications is out now.
Intended to be published twice a year, it could be considered to offer a different insight to the subject which the internet (a fast-attention medium) couldn’t produce. Usually, coverage on this topic in print is esoteric, but the tone here is far more informal to it’s advantage - over 200 ad-free pages with beautifully designed layouts. There are interviews with animator David O’Reilly (famous for his one-off Adventure Time 3D glitch episode and the graphics for the Spike Jonze film Her), artist Racquel Myers who works with the graphical limiations of the Commodore C64, and installation artist Zimoun (who I have covered here before) who creates simple minimalist works with basic materials.
Here is a two-minute review put together by Steven Watson on the magazine:
All in all, it is a satisfying publication on the subject even if you are already familiar with some of the projects included from the internet. A promising first issue which does justice to the subject.
